About the Author

Frances Augusta "Franny" Hogg spent 22 years living and working as a poverty lawyer in Detroit's infamous Cass Corridor, where she wrote a series of mystery novels featuring amateur sleuth, Callie Sadler. She spent the next decade in New York's Hudson River Valley, working as a freelance editor and story coach, and as a horror fiction editor for Dark Moon Books. In 2012, she and her husband, Robert Lochow, retired to Cuenca, Ecuador, where she divides her time between working as a volunteer teacher at a rural school for disadvantaged children, and writing. Franny wrote a guide for buying an preparing food in Ecuador after witnessing the near implosion of an expat gentleman in a Cuenca supermarket, furious because "They don't have pancake mix!" Well, they didn't have pancake mix with a picture of Aunt Jemima on the box. Or mix in a box. Or anything with the word "pancake mix" on it. But they certainly did have the flour and leavening mix you use to make pancakes. "I saw a need for a Spanish/English shopping guide, So I wrote one."
