After much reflection the pen name of Frankie Yandow has come to an end. Intended to pay homage to my maternal grandparents and a play off my middle name, the name never caught on as much as I had hoped. I’m not sure why I thought it would, but it seemed like a cool idea at the time. Understanding that shifting Luza and Riley to Jonathan Kuiper will potentially confuse my readership, I decided to do it anyway.
For all practical purposes nothing changes. Luza and Riley are the same books they were but the series name has shifted to focus more on the direction and purpose of these seven (5 to come) novels. Not to mention, I no longer have to explain to my students why there are different author names on my books. If you are lucky enough to have the first edition of Luza, you my lucky reader have a collector’s item.
In the weeks ahead I’ll update you more on future books in the series. In the meantime, happy reading and enjoy Keira and Luza’s favorite season.
