Franny writes middle-grade and young-adult fantasies. Her most recent novel, Chime, was nominated for the National Book Award. Her novel The Folk Keeper won the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award and the Mythopoeic Award. She’s written one picture book, Big Bad Bunny, and would like to write more because they consist of so few words, but that’s also the problem: The words are so few, she can never find them. She teaches at Vermont College of Fine Arts and lives in Mexico.
