Frannie and Doug Watson spoke at the 7th Annual AJC Decatur Book Festival on September 8th, 2012.
Frannie Watson earned a BS degree was in Education from Georgia State University in Atlanta, Ga. and a Certificate in Bible and Missions from Columbia Graduate School in Columbia, SC. She has worked in private secondary schools and worked in France as a missionary for several years. Once she returned from France, Frannie worked in several professional positions with corporate and manufacturing firms. But her passion is working with people in recovery small groups through Worldwide Discipleship Association. She especially likes working with those who are dealing with codependent and addition issues. The vision and motivation for writing Mirrors has been a culmination of what she learned from her own poor decisions and life experiences.
After finishing the Mirrors project, she published two novels: Pursued but Shielded and Snatched but Followed. She realized by using suspenseful fiction stories she could help educate her audience as well as entertain them. These two novels address the hardships of underage girls in sex trafficking and women who have been sexually assaulted. Her next topic is still up in the air but please return to see what is next…
It is our greatest hope that each of the books will help to bring peace and greater emotional health through God’s Holy Spirit for each or our readers.
