Francie Low loves sharing a laugh or tear through published personal essays, award winning blog posts and her first book Alive and Fixable. Some of her work is on HuffPo, Literary Mama and featured posts on BlogHer. She’s been on the San Francisco Bay Area NPR station twice for their listener commentary, With A Perspective and performed in Listen To Your Mother, a live-storytelling event.
Alive and Fixable is a memoir about the fifteen months Francie spent with her husband getting him back on a bike after a terrible, terrible cycling accident in 2010. Early reviews say the book is inspiring, moving and surprisingly funny. The book was born out of the updates she shared on caringbridge.org, giving her an escape to rise above a traumatic time and discover she could write.
Francie is a former marketing and sales professional turned full-time mom and career volunteer. She served as board president for several philanthropic organizations over the years. While her two boys are at university, most of her days are dedicated to book talks, writing, blogging and enjoying time with her husband.
