Frances Peck (she/her)

Rebecca Blissett

Frances Peck (Vancouver, Canada) wrote fiction and poetry until her early twenties, when she stopped (ironically) to earn a living from words as an editor and ghostwriter. Her debut novel, "The Broken Places," explores how a devastating earthquake in the Pacific Northwest shakes up the lives and relationships of a group of wildly different people thrown together by circumstances. Hailed as a “beautifully layered and compelling” story with “nuanced, stunning characters,” "The Broken Places" was named a best book of 2022 by Canada's national newspaper, the Globe and Mail. Frances's second novel, "Uncontrolled Flight," comes out in September.
