Reading and writing is fun!!

Background Information

My name is Frances D. Beckham, a writer of children and young adult fiction. As a long time resident of the Pacific Northwest, I have developed an appreciation for the beauty and spirit of our region’s natural environment. Also I have great respect and admiration for the wonderfully unique personality that we as citizens of the region have developed. I enjoy learning about different cultures, their unique practices, superstitions, and religious belief. As a writer I have learned to use my love for nature, my interest in people, and my knowledge of various cultures to influence my literary creations. In my writings the characters are adventurous, curious, and mystifying. My stories explore the connection between the spiritual environment and the physical environment. The characters gain an understanding of spirituality and relate the understanding to life’s crisis, experiences, and situations. As a result the characters have unusual real life experiences that only occur in the imagination. By balancing drama and comedy the stories are entertaining and can be enjoyed by children and adults.

Birth Place
vancouver, WA united states

I have a degree in accounting, but I decided to start a career as a writer. I have recently published my first novel. It is titled Brookline of St. Mary's Asylum.

Additional Information

Brookline of St. Mary’s Asylum by F.D. Beckham has 29 chapters and 220 pages. Brookline of St. Mary’s Asylum is a delightful, light hearted, and interesting story about a girl named Brookline who is sent to live at an orphan asylum. Brookline unknowingly possesses a special perception and ability that manifests through strange dreams and deep feelings. Periodically she has strange dreams, but she does not understand them nor understand why she has them. Being a child she thinks they are very amusing and share them with her friends. St. Mary’s Asylum is unlike the typical idea of an orphan home. There are no rigid rules. The children do as they please, which often results in mischief. A grim nun named Sister Quartince, the new director of the asylum, attempts to bring order and structure to the home. However, the spirited children with the encouragement of the other nuns and priest defy her. Although the home is poor, it is comfortable and the children love it. Brookline grows to like the asylum, and she develops a good friendship with her roommates, Jane and Missy. Throughout the story Brookline and her comrades get into exciting and unusual situations and meet interesting people, getting into trouble and having lots of fun. Brookline of St. Mary’s Asylum contains the excitement, comedy, and mystery that children like, and it is good for improving reading skills.
