Born in South Africa, romance author Francine Beaton now lives in Glasgow with her Scottish-born husband and daughter.
It’s easy to figure out why Francine's debut novel, Eye on the Ball, as well as the series, Playing for Glory, has rugby as a theme. During rugby season, you’ll find her either next to the pitch or in front of the television, following her favourite teams. That came as a legacy from her childhood, watching the game with her father and three older brothers. She adopted the motto, "If you can't beat them, join them."
When she is not reading or writing about love and Happy Ever After, she’s most likely busy painting or taking photos of everything that catches her eye.
