Author Linda Maria Frank

Linda Maria Frank, author of Annie Tillery Mystery Series, has been the Top Female Author in the 2018 Top Female Author Awards in the Young Adults/Teen category. Frank was chosen from a field hundreds of authors by a panel of judges.

"Civilizations are defined by their stories," Frank stated. "First it was oral history, then parchment, and finally books. The stories in book, provided by the author, whether they be fiction or fact, give an insight into what the people of a particular culture believe at any one given time. What they say is important for it reflects their values, their history, their use of technology, and what they wish to tell future generations, or hide from them."

Linda writes great teen mystery books, inspired by a childhood passion for Nancy Drew books and the popular television series, CSI. She combines an appealing heroine, Annie Tillery, with a gripping story plot to create new fiction books for mystery readers. Her works are exactingly authentic, as she finished her teaching career in high school as a Department Chairperson, teaching biology, chemistry and forensic science. She then went on to teach forensic science and biotechnology at Hofstra University.

Linda has written 5 books in Annie Tillery Mystery Series:

The Madonna Ghost
Girl with Pencil, Drawing
Secrets in the Fairy Chimneys
The Mystery of the Lost Avenger
Making a Mystery with Annie Tillery

Reviewers have high praise for Frank's Annie Tillery Mystery Series. One reviewer stated, "Linda Frank might as well be the next Carolyn Keene with her new age mystery luring readers from every angle--suspense, romance, and modern forensics. This is a perfect book for all ages, particularly young readers who might find Nancy Drew a bit old-fashioned. Written in a way where every chapter leaves you with a crisp, familiar image of each character and location."

Linda Maria Frank is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below, or by email at All of Linda Maria Frank’s works are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Ingram and Baker and Taylor. She appears on an ongoing basis on The Authors Show. More information is available at Frank’s website.

Linda Maria Frank is a native of New York City. Her life-long career has been in teaching. She taught in Seaford, in the Middle School and in the High School. She taught science, ending her career in the high school as Department Chairperson, teaching biology, chemistry and forensic science. She went on to teach at Hofstra University, forensic science and biotechnology. She also supervised science student teachers at Adelphi University.

It was her forensic science courses coupled with her love of Nancy Drew and other mystery heroes that led her to write the Annie Tillery Mysteries, ‘The Madonna Ghost’ and ‘Girl With Pencil, Drawing’, 'Secrets in the Fairy Chimneys' and 'The Mystery of the Lost Avenger'.

She was awarded the Seaford High School Teacher of the Year in 1989, and received an award from the American Association of University Women in 1995 for inspiring young women to pursue the field of science.

Frank also produces a TV show, The Writer’s Dream, on LTV-EH, a local access station in East Hampton, as well as Long Island Cablevision, channel 20.
