M.Francik, the Author

Book 1 of the Donahue Brothers of Texas is live!

Murder with a Pinch of Rosemary, my first book in the Texas Sized Mystery series is now available on Amazon in paperback. The Kindle ebook is available for pre-order on Amazon with a release date of July 5th, 2019! Meet the first of the Donahue brothers, Reed, a U.S. Marshal.

This series is a sub-series of Texas Sized Mysteries and is my first book in the main series. I’m nearly finished with book 2 of the Donahue Brothers of Texas, which is tentatively titled, Murder in the Maternity Ward. This book goes a little further into Maggie Donahue’s life with Reed’s brother, Garrett.


Welcome to my new author website.

My name is Michelle and I am an author and freelance writer. You’ve landed on my website! Nice to see you here.

I just released a novella,, “Murder and a Pinch of Rosemary: The Donahue Brothers of Texas, Book 1.” It’s the third book in Sweet Promise Press’ cozy mystery series, Texas Sized Mysteries.

The second book in my subseries, “Murder in the Maternity Ward,” is being proofread and formatted. It is scheduled for release on November 8th, 2019. I’ll let you know when it’s available for pre-order.

In the meantime, I’m finishing up some other projects and plan to publish them soon. I have a book of quotes for writers, the first book in a series of children’s chapter books, and even more romance and intrigue.

I’ll also post upcoming events for myself, my friends, and my co-authors at Sweet Promise Press.
