His first love, Adult and Young Adult fiction, tackles diverse subjects from the world of horse racing to politics, focusing on characters as much as a page-turning plot.  His novel, Abingdon's, was a bestseller and a Literary Guild Alternate Selection.

Receiving his Bachelor of Arts in English from Stanford University, he focused on creative writing and studied under Wallace Stegner.

An avid trekker and traveler to developing countries, French loves diving and snorkeling, and for the last decade began studying  endangered marine and land mammals.   He believes climate change is currently the world’s greatest long-term problem.

He and  Patricia divide their time between Santa Barbara, California, and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
