Perilous Times: An inside look at abortion before - and after - Roe v Wade. This is Fran's newest work, coming in May 2013 from YBK Publishers. Author Anne Lamott calls Perilous Times "an important contribution to the discussion" about reproductive rights.
Fran Moreland Johns grew up in Ashland, Virginia in the 1940s, a place and time that come alive in many of her short stories and nonfiction works. A graduate (BA, Art) of Randolph-Macon Woman's College and lifelong freelance writer for newspapers and magazines, she raised three children (parents of her 5 flawless grandchildren) in Decatur, GA before eventually marrying her final husband, Bud Johns, moving to San Francisco, picking up an MFA in short fiction (USF, 2000) and broadening her literary adventures. Fran remains active with end-of-life, arts and interfaith causes.
