Frank has spent decades writing about “things that go fast and make a lot of noise,” covering subjects ranging from the United States space program to motorsports to the world of rock and roll. His many nonfiction books include the award-winning titles "Sunday Drivers: NASCAR Winston Cup Stock Car Racing" and "Supercars: The Story of the Dodge Charger Daytona and Plymouth SuperBird," and he has contributed articles to a variety of national and international publications. A guitarist himself, Frank will next publish a second book about the music of Jimi Hendrix. When not writing or playing guitar, Frank enjoys the supercharger symphony of his own 2003 Ford SVT Mustang Cobra "Terminator."
Designer and Photographer
A graphic designer by trade, in 1999, Marcie became involved in the publication of the "SVT Mustang Cobra Recognition Guide 1993-2000." The success of that book led to the publishing of the "Fox-Body Mustang Recognition Guide 1979-1993" in 2003. Having the good fortune to be able to blend her career with her love of the collector car hobby, Marcie’s goal is to create more publications focused on the amazing vehicles produced by Ford Motor Company, a venture gladly undertaken on behalf of all Ford fans worldwide. Although born into a family of Dodge and Chevy fans, at an early age, Marcie became a die-hard Ford enthusiast. Since buying a 1984 Mustang while in high school, she has owned over two dozen Fords of all shapes and sizes, 17 of those being Mustangs, including a 1964-1/2 coupe, a 2004 Screaming Yellow SVT Cobra Convertible and a 2014 50th Anniversary Holman & Moody TdF Mustang.
