Author Biography - Susan Frank
Susan and Phil started their life together on a houseboat in Sausalito, California. This led to their first book collaboration, a children's book about living on the water. Both avid history buffs, they moved from ship to shore about ten years ago. At present they maintain a 1914 Craftsman-style home in Sausalito, from which they venture into the national parks and other wilderness areas in search of inspiration for a new book. They have two grown children, two grandchildren, two Maltese-cross dogs, and two cats.
