Francis Audrain is the author of three epic sagas--under the title of The Everlasting Spring: Beyond Olympus--available at all major book sellers.Frank Audrain (Author Francis Audrain) is a direct descendant of patriots whose North American patriarch was a Franco-Viking.

Pierre "Peter" Audrain came to the New World from Normandy and entered the British Colony of Pennsylvania before the American Revolutionary War. He fought for American's Independence from England and had sons, grandsons and great-grandsons who fought in every American conflict since, ending with Frank's world-wide service as a United States Marine, West Point Cadet, and well decorated Airborne-Ranger, Infantry Officer.

In November of 1989 as the "Cold War" with Russia was ending, Frank and his family returned to civilian life in the American West, where he began a second career in the corporate banking business, with First Interstate Bank of Nevada.

Frank knew about Wells Fargo Bank, it's brand, and it's history: His great grand-parents came West in the California Gold Rush, as the legendary company was founded. They traveled in the company's Concord Stagecoaches, and for many long years, were loyal Wells Fargo branch customers.

So when Frank was urged to join the company's eastward expansion in 1996, he boarded the Stagecoach--without hesitation.

And in September of 2001, the Audrain family began another relocation: the sixteenth family move, since Dana and Frank were married at West Point in June of 1968.

From the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Minneapolis, Frank reached out, in two directions, to extend Wells Fargo's Commercial Banking Division from the Continental Divide, to the Atlantic Coast.

When the final mergers, acquisitions and integrations had been completed, the Audrain's "stepped down from the Stagecoach" to begin another, new life.

After slowing down, catching up with some personal and family interests, and enjoying the time to do a deep-dive of reflection, Frank began his third vocation writing short stories for magazines--and The Everlasting Spring: Beyond Olympus trilogy soon emerged, from a recommendation by the editor of a popular magazine publishing house in New York:

"We loved your short story about The Man Who Loved Blue Star...and hope you will expand it as a trilogy."

With that, Frank became Author Francis Audrain--with the drive in a remarkable life, and a world-wide view, seeking true history, as risk taker, who never hesitated to "go for the gusto" during challenges, as a youth, and beyond...was ready and willing to offer literary prose with a purpose, a reason, and exceptional meaning for readers who love authentic historical fiction, inspired by actual events involving heroic men and women; enhanced by a variety of sub-genres--adding interest and variety, for adults who want open-minded wisdom and enlightenment, replete with "food-for-thought" regarding human nature, war and peace--and the reality of real people seeking pathways to happiness with everlasting truth, and true love.
