Dorothea Benton Frank

I am the author of twenty novels placed in and around the Lowcountry of South Carolina and thanking God for my chance to speak. When I'm not writing, I'm reading or gardening or cooking. Love to travel, shoot the breeze with people and most of all, be with my husband, children and their spouses, and especially Teddy Spaghetti. My most recent novel, Queen Bee (William Morrow) goes on sale May 14, 2019. Love to have company so come visit at www.dotfrank.com or on Facebook and Instagram. And by the way, serious huge gushing thanks for everything - your kind words, posts and emails. Writing saves me, but without your support it wouldn't mean as much. Dot xoxo
