Kris Francoeur, writer, and educator, is a grieving mother who has found joy and light again through the practice of conscious and deliberate gratitude, unconditional acceptance and connection with nature. A graduate of Middlebury College, Kris earned master’s degrees in both Counseling Psychology (Union Institute of Vermont College) and Educational Leadership (Castleton University), and Kris writes with authority about grief and moving forward in our hectic and stressful world.
A published author of fiction, Kris has published three romance novels (More Than I Can Say, That One Small Omission and The Phone Call) with Solstice Publishing using her pen name Anna Belle Rose. All three of her novels are widely available through online retailers and bookstores, or on Kris’s website.
Kris lives in beautiful Addison County, Vermont with her husband and youngest son, a small herd of alpacas, a flock of chickens and several hives of bees. Kris loves to spend time with her family (including her sons, daughter, and grandchildren), spending time in the garden and spinning the alpaca fiber for yarn for knitting. Kris continues to write fiction, while also working on several non-fiction projects including a motivational journal for adolescents.
In May 2019, Kris’s memoir, Of Grief, Garlic and Gratitude, will be released by Morgan James Publishing. Signed copies of Of Grief, Garlic and Gratitude are available now through the bookstore on Kris's website.
