FRANCINE BEATON is a romance writer who lives in Pretoria with her Scottish husband and teenage daughter and Rocky the Cat. When she’s not reading or writing about love and Happy Ever Afters, she’s most likely busy painting or taking photos of everything that catches her interest.
During rugby season, you’ll either find her next to the pitch or in front of the television, following her favourite teams. It’s probably not difficult to figure out why her debut novel, Eye on the Ball, as well as the series, Playing for Glory, has rugby as a theme.
Whenever she gets the opportunity, she loves travelling to faraway places and considers Scotland her other home.
Francine is also the author of the Taste for Love Series, a set of free-standing novels with food and drinks the binding factor. The first book in another new series, Blue Mountains, set in the heart of South Africa’s Winelands, will be released in 2018.
Francine is a member of the Romance Writers Organisation of South Africa (ROSA), the Romantic Novelist Association (RNA) and the Romance Writers of America (RWA)
