Francess Lantz Books & Biography


Francess Lantz's beautifully rendered, compassionate portrait of a complex father-daughter relationship pays tribute to the ability of love to transcend boundaries of life and death. FRANCESS LANTZ is the author of SOMEONE TO LOVE and several other books for young people. A graduate of Dickinson College, she has worked as a children's librarian, a rock-and roll musician, and a book reviewer. She writes: "Although FADE FAR AWAY is a fictional story, I know how it feels to lose a father and to feel on the outside, powerless to help. My father, an architect, died when I was fifteen. I often wished he'd had a chance to spend time alone with him during his illness. Instead, I've given my main character, Sienna, that chance." Francess Lantz lives with her husband and young son in Santa Barbara, California.
