About this title

Synopsis:

Captain Tom and Franny reminds us that life is precious, and as it nears its end and we grapple with memories of sorrow and pain, the love we experienced on the journey can and does triumph. You walk with Franny after Alzheimer s has her in its grips, and you feel her confusionas she begins a journey back in time. Through Franny s memories, you will smell Tom s pipe tobacco; you will feel Tom swimming beside you in the ocean; and you will cringe from his rages when he s had too much to drink. The trials and tribulations of Captain Tom and Franny s tumultuous lives are exposed, forgiven, and ultimately cherished by Franny. This story stays with you, even after the last page is turned. This is Jennifer McGraw-Miceli s first novel and it is the winner of the Fred Bonnie Memorial for Best First Novel.

About the Author:

Jennifer McGraw-Miceli was born, the second of five children, to Tom and Franny in Atlanta, Georgia. The family then moved back to Jacksonville Beach, Florida where she lived until she was nine. After that, they moved countless times and she attended thirteen different schools. Jennifer has a love for theater and acting, and when she was eighteen, she moved to New York City to attend the NY Academy of Theatrical Arts where she met her husband, Jerry and appeared in several off-Broadway productions. They later moved to New Jersey and opened Actors Loft, an acting school and theater. After the births of their three children, Juliette, Michael and Patrick, they moved to Las Vegas where Jennifer graduated from the Art Institute of Nevada in Las Vegas. Jennifer has also painted many murals for Las Vegas businesses. In Jennifer s own words: The South is a part of my heritage. It is embossed on my soul. All of it. The heat and humidity. The bites of angry mosquitoes after an afternoon downpour. The brilliant blue sky filled with the yellow of the afternoon sun. My eyes never have forgotten the sights, my ears never will forget the sounds and my mind is still a vault which holds all of the memories that form my southern childhood. I live my adult life in the Southwest. The colors here are a sharp contrast to the colors of the South. The way the sun bounces off the sand and the mountains produce colors not found anywhere else. I traded the blues and greens of the sea and surf for the purples and oranges of the mountains. Jennifer currently lives in Las Vegas and is working on another novel.
