Lois P. Frankel

Dr. Lois Frankel attributes being an "avid writer" to having been an avid reader from childhood through the present. As a young girl growing up in New York she would anxiously wait for the next issue of the Weekly Reader to arrive at school so she could scour the back for new books to order at the cost of 25¢ each. Immersing herself in the stories of Little Women, Annie Oakley, Nancy Drew, and Cherry Ames Lois dreamed of one day becoming a writer herself. By the time she reached high school her focused shifted as she planned her career as a psychologist. It was only after her first book, Women, Anger & Depression: Strategies for Self-Empowerment, was published that Lois realized she had fulfilled her long-forgotten childhood dream.

Lois has always written about those things she feels closest to - workplace and women's issues. Her "research" is her experience working as a psychotherapist, business coach, and workshop facilitator for corporations around the globe. She was a pioneer in the field of business coaching and is still one of the few coaches in the country with a combination of ten years working in human resources at a Fortune 10 oil company and psychological expertise. Staying on top of the human aspects of business requires Lois to read the latest in business books but she still finds time for her favorite "true crime" authors such as Ann Rule and Patricia Cornwell.
