Product description

About the Author

ook, AWOL is also rather fair and balanced—and generally quite persuasive.”

NBC former anchor and author Tom Brokaw says, “AWOL is a powerful and timely account of those missing in action—the privileged class of America staying out of uniform and out of harm's way.”

General (Retired) Les Palm President and CEO Marine Corps Association says: “In AWOL, Frank Schaeffer and Kathy Roth-Douquet, a parent and a spouse of Marines, respectively, provide thoughtful insights into one of our nation's most tragic and growing ironies: the citizen's of our nation who have benefited most from the opportunities our society provides have no sense of obligation or duty to defend those ideals under which they have so successfully prospered. AWOL drives home, with hope and respect for our forebears, the need to address the evaporating sense of duty and service to our nation.”

Frank's fourth novel, Baby Jack, is due out in the fall season of 2006 from Carroll and Graf (Avalon) as their lead fiction title.

Frank was born in Switzerland to the famous American evangelical theologian/evangelist Dr. Francis Schaeffer. Frank was sent to British boarding schools—from which he ran away at fifteen. He became an artist protégé. His first one-man show was in New York at the Frisch Gallery when he was seventeen. It was followed by successful shows in London and Geneva. Mrs. David Rockefeller bought the first painting sold at Frank's New York show.

Frank is a survivor of both polio and an evangelical/fundamentalist childhood, an acclaimed writerr who overcame severe dyslexia, a home-schooled and self-taught documenttary movie director, a feature film director and producer of four (“pretty terrible”) low budget Hollywood features, and a best selling author of both fiction and nonfiction.

Frank is married to Genie. They have three children and two grandchildren. Frank and his family have lived in Switzerland, England, and South Africa, and now reside near Boston.
