Patrick 'Frankie' Heverin was born in Liverpool in the early Seventies into an Irish Catholic extended family of a few dozen Aunties and Uncles and a few score cousins on both sides of the water. The family (split between Belfast, Liverpool, London and Boston) survived but was not untouched by the so-called 'Troubles' raging around them. Frankie had always wanted to become a soldier but had been wisely kept clear of both the British Army and the IRA by a wise and watchful group of older brothers and sisters.
In 1994, after graduating in Astrophysics from Trinity College Dublin, Frankie joined the French Foreign Legion under circumstances that have never been clear. His career as a regular soldier was undistinguished and his subsequent roles within the French Military are as yet undisclosed. Returning to the UK in 2003, Frankie began to put his Scientific background to good use as a teacher in his native Liverpool. As Everton repeatedly to failed to notice his abilities in the North Merseyside Amateur League Division Two, in 2007, Frankie began to wander once more.
Volunteering in Africa and South East Asia, Frankie found himself more and more in a position where he was required to write persuasively on behalf of others. Finally, realising that telling people's stories was both a passion and a gift, Frankie decided to tell his own story in his own way. The 'Turncoat' series is the culmination of this fantastic journey. Based in Bali, Frankie now has the time and the tools to tell the stories that matter to him and to those he has grown to love along the way.
