Fran Rizer

I Googled myself.

When my webmaster told me to write a bio, I looked to see what readers could already learn from the Internet. According to Google, Fran Rizer:

  • published articles in many magazines, including Bluegrass Unlimited and Bluegrass Now
  • won awards in photography, including photo-essay Sequence of a Smile
  • co-authored scientific nature studies for Clemson University
  • won several fiction and poetry writing contests including Augusta Arts Council
  • wrote songs that were published, recorded, and received radio airplay, but no hits yet
  • signed a three-book contract with Berkley Prime Crime in 2006 for the Callie Parrish Mystery Series; the first one being A Tisket, A Tasket, A Fancy Stolen Casket to be released October 2, 2007
  • graduated from high school in 1942 and died about ten years ago
Oops! That last one was a different Fran Rizer.

To paraphrase Mark Twain, "The rumors of my death were greatly exaggerated." The first six do refer to me, the Fran Rizer who writes Callie Parrish mysteries. Google also lists places to buy my books and several places that authors I met in New York at the 2007 Mystery Writers of America Edgars Awards have been kind enough to write about me.

What else would you like to know? I was born in South Carolina on December twelfth and stayed here. Callie Parrish came to life after I retired from twenty-five years' teaching in public schools. My family includes my mother, two sons, and one grandson, who also loves to write.

To learn more, e-mail me or contact me through the Guestbook. I'll answer most questions including the color du jour of Callie's or my hair or Callie's age, but not mine.
