Meet the Author

Just about all of us want to get away from the demands of everyday life from time to time. Unfortunately, most of us don't have the luxury of being able to take off to some new, exciting place whenever we feel the urge--unless we like to read.

A book can take us anywhere we'd like to go. For readers who enjoy living vicariously in pastimes or in modern times Fran Shaff provides a great escape in the more than twenty novels she's published over the years. Fran's fictional books have won awards from readers, reviewers and fellow authors, and her non-fiction has been acknowledged in this way too.

Love is the main focus of all of Fran's books, whether they're contemporary or historical, serious or humorous, written for adults or teens. Love between men and women and among friends and families is featured in her books because there is nothing most of us want more than to love and be loved. Happy endings abound, but the journey to reaching that joyful final moment is always a rocky struggle, just the way we want our fiction (even though we could do without the drama in our real lives).

Look for new, full-length historical romance novels from Fran Shaff in the ten-book "Tender Mysteries Series," available now and debuting throughout 2013 and 2014. The first novel in the series "Resurrected" is available as a free download at most Internet bookstores. The series is available in single e-book and two-pack paperback formats.

For Love of Maggie by Fran Shaff Kayla Franklin has one goal - to make sure her special child, Maggie, lives with joy, love, and the opportunities she needs to develop her full potential. Roth Simons just wants to turn down a remodeling job his partner accepted without consulting him. When their three worlds collide, everyone but Maggie is thrown for a loop. Leaving Milwaukee for a farm in Wisconsin, Kayla needs Roth to make her new home Maggie-safe, as well as remodel her barn for the animals Maggie adores. The proverbial sparks fly until Kayla gets an unvarnished look at Roth's face when he realizes Maggie has Down Syndrome. From that moment on, no matter how much she wants his arms aroiund her and his lips on hers, he's not the man for her.   With a wealthy neighboring farmer out to buy her land and marry her in the bargain,  and Roth ready to get under her defenses at the slightest proximity,  Kayla has her hands full.  When her barn burns down one night, Roth is sure Vint, the neighboring farmer, has a hand in it when he shows up before dawn,  arms open to console Kayla and a crew to clean up her destroyed barn. Every time Roth has tried to tell Kayla how much he's grown to love Maggie, Vint shows up, flowers in hand, to upstage him, and Roth doesn't trust him to love Kayla, much less treat her right. Wrong first impressions, ones both new and long standing, get righted. Maggie blossoms and makes her first childhood friend.  Along the way, Kayla figures out why she's afraid to face her feelings for Roth. Roth learns to let Kayla go, if that's what she wants.  Finally, their divergent paths meld to make a family. Ms. Schaff writes with passion and understanding of the difficulties and highs involved in raising a special child. Her characters are both flawed and human, yet capable of learning from their mistakes and rising higher. While the sexual tension between Kayla and Roth pulses from the page, there is no sex before marriage.  Passionate kisses a-plenty, though!
