Michelle Frances is a USA Today bestselling English writer of mystery, suspense, thriller, and crime fiction novels. She has written three standalone novels in her career so far. Frances became widely popular with her very first novel called The Girlfriend, which achieved the status of an international bestseller. Before beginning her career in the field of novel writing, Frances completed her graduation from the Bournemouth Film School. After this, she joined the American Film Institute in Los Angeles for a Masters programme. Following her successful completion of masters programme, Frances returned to London and started working as a producer and script editor. She was involved in working for TV and films for several years and was part of both the BBC and the independent sector. After giving several years of her life to script writing, Frances decided to try her hand at writing a novel. She chose the genre of psychological thriller and published her first book under the title of The Girlfriend.

After its successful run in many countries, the book has been optioned for a movie adaptation by Imaginarium Studios. The translation rights of the book have been sold in as many as 16 foreign countries. As of today, author Frances resides in East Surrey. She likes to spend her spare time in the company of her loving family and her beloved field spaniel named Ripley. Frances says that she loves to write about fraught relationships between men as well as women. At the center of both of her novels’ stories is fear. Sometimes, it is the fear of losing one’s boyfriend or son, whereas sometimes the fear is about losing one’s job. Frances is also fascinated by the way psychotic tendencies take a dangerous form in people when they feel the threat of something.

Frances seems to have a soft spot for the characters of her books. Cherry from her first novel and Emma from her second novel are her favorite characters. As depicted by her characters in her novels, Frances feels that there is too much competition in the workplace. And the victims of workplace competition are both men and women. When Frances was doing the research work for her second book, she came across a few jaw-dropping stories. She learned that the female employees were replaced by new temps when they were on maternity leave. In a few cases, incompetent assistants were hired in place of pregnant employees. Such stories made Frances feel that deciding to have a family can be a challenging task for working women. When Frances moved on to write the second book, she felt more nervous because of the expectation of people around her.

Frances loves the joy of dreaming big story plots, blue-sky thinking, inventing new characters at the start of the process of writing a novel. She becomes much more excited when she sees that her story is starting to take shape. Frances loves the overall procedure of developing a story and its characters. After two successful stints in her writing career, Frances has come up with another story centered around a woman, who fights for her daughter’s justice. This book, entitled The Daughter, is expected to be released in June 2019. Frances is quite content with the way her literary career has shaped up. She is motivated by the love of the readers towards her books and hopes to keep doing the good work for many more years to come. Frances wishes to get the love of her fans for all her future novels.
