8 children’s books by the writer

Born in 1946 in the West Riding of Yorkshire's coalfields around Wakefield, he attended grammar school where he enjoyed sport rather more than academic work. After three years at teacher training college in Leeds, Frank became a teacher in 1967. He spent a lot of time during his teaching career entertaining children of all ages, a large part of which was through telling stories, and encouraging them to escape into a world of imagination and wonder. Recently, Frank retired after forty years working in education, most of whom had significantly disrupted lives due to behavioural disorders and poor social environments, generally brought about through circumstances beyond their control. He found some of his most troubled youngsters to be very talented poets. Frank has always had a wicked sense of humour, which also allowed many youngsters to survive often challenging home environments. Supported by his present wife, Denise, he achieved a Master's degree in his mid-forties and a PhD at the age of fifty-six, something he had always wanted to do. Now enjoying glorious retirement, Frank spends as much time as life will allow writing, reading and travelling.
