KC Frantzen learned to speak “critter” at a young age. As a veterinarian’s daughter, she was always surrounded by four footed friends (and still is). Occasionally her dad would bring home a patient needing care during the night. He’d put the pet carrier on the dryer, and she would stand on tippy toes to comfort the guest as best she could.
She began writing in elementary school and even won the school-wide contest with a story on deep sea fishing. Though she kept writing here and there, it was mostly just for fun. KC taught fifth grade, worked for an oilfield supply company, a pharmaceutical company, created and managed her own supply business, operated a franchise welcoming new movers… The list goes on…
Many years after elementary school, KC began to think seriously about telling May’s story, and completed the Christian Writers Guild Apprentice course and Boot Camp, which helped her to prepare. (In the interest of full disclosure: May is the actual storyteller but, since she has no thumbs, KC is the transcriptionist and initial editor.)
While the series is technically a middle grade adventure, surprisingly, most of May’s fans are adults. So we say our stories are for animal lovers 8 years old and up
KC and her husband volunteer with a variety of projects, including the Joni & Friends Wounded Warrior Getaway. They enjoy traveling just about anywhere, which helps formulate ideas for May the K9 Spy. The family lives in the country hills of middle Tennessee with two Arabian horses and several dogs, including the real May
