Francine Mann spent most of her working career on the public relations side of the music industry, working with both local and international acts. Several years were also spent working in London and New York in the late 70’s and early 80’s, until the emotional pull of family and friends brought her back to South Africa.

“I always enjoy interacting with people from all walks of life and like to believe that I have been blessed with a strong sense of empathy and caring and that which drives my belief that we are all equal and deserving of a chance to explore our hopes and dreams.

If ‘BROKEN BASKET’ lends hope and encouragement to just one person struggling for self-authenticity, then already the load has been lightened. This is Francine’s first novel.
