Franci McMahon

Franci McMahon mines her years of riding and breeding horses to write novels of suspense for even those unlucky enough to be born without the horse gene. Rounding out her life as a writer, she has three novels with a fourth in the wings, many works in anthologies, stories for children and adults in national magazines, a poetry prize, and an enriching stay at Hedgebrook.


Beyond horses, Franci's life is filled with classical music, cooking, knitting, reading complex novels with a story, dancing close to a warm woman, and sitting in silence, often at Quaker meeting. These are some of her deepest pleasures. She divides her time between Montana and Tucson, Arizona.
