June Francis’ introduction to stories was when her father came home from the war and sat her on his knee and told her tales from Hans Christian Anderson. Being a child during such an austere period, her great escape was the cinema where she fell in love with Hollywood movies, loving in particular musicals and Westerns. Years later, after having numerous articles published in a women's magazine, she knew that her heart really lay in the novel and June has been writing ever since.
