FRANCES ALTMAN has enjoyed a long career in communications by blending public relations, marketing and freelance writing. Now retired, she began writing children’s stories as a stay-at-home mother, then worked for Field Enterprises community newspapers and The Chicago Sun-Times, National Hot Dog & Sausage Council, Allied Signal and Virginia Commonwealth University, where she also taught. She has written several hundred newspaper and magazine articles on food, community businesses, and children’s stores for Child Life, Highlights, and Weekly Reader. She has published nine books for young readers, including Something Egg, Reggie the Goat, Spirit Dog, Mister Umbrella Men, and Escape to Freedom.
She earned a Master’s degree from Roosevelt University, Chicago. Her tenth book, Destiny’s Daughter, is a bonus to a long career. It highlights the life of Mary Edwards Walker, a suffragist, a Civil War doctor, and an advocate for women’s health and education during an opposed time.
Her writing has received awards from the Nat’l Federation of Press Women, Nat’l League American Pen Women, IABC, Public Relations Society of America, Illinois Women’s Press, and Northern Illinois Press. She is a recipient of the TWIN National YWCA Award for business leadership.
Altman has spent several recent years encouraging seniors to use writing as a therapy. Many only want to write journal and memoir pieces. She has spoken on this topic at Seven Oaks Senior Center, Brightview centers and Baltimore Dept. of Aging’s Zoom programs.
