Dottie wrote her first book because she was angry enough to write the book that 'she had to write.' Her first book was written when she was 43 years old when she had spent years mothering her children, fundraising and working for community organizations. She's had nine books published in the meantime ... and is working on another.
Dottie Frank is one frank woman. She is delightful and she woke all of us up from dinner stupor. (The sandy sunset, wine and carbohydrates in the bread and bisque.) Her anecdotal talk was full of fun, peppered with colorful language. Her mother, her husband, her mother-in-law and Gore Vidal were all victims of her barbs.
