Frankie Bow writes two mystery series: The Professor Molly mysteries (https://www.amazon.com/s?k=professor+molly) and The Mary-Alice Files (https://amzn.to/2VVveKU). Writing as Patience Fairweather, she is also the author of No, You Can't be an Astronaut, a realistic career guide (https://amzn.to/32IzuA4).
Like Professor Molly, Frankie teaches at a public university. Unlike her protagonist, she is blessed with delightful students, sane colleagues, and a perfectly nice office chair.
In addition to writing murder mysteries and self-help books, Frankie publishes in scholarly journals under her real name. Her experience with academic publishing has taught her to take nothing personally. She believes if life isn't fair, at least it can be entertaining.
