About Auntie Francine
Francine St.Amand has lived 35 of her 55 years in the oddly named rural community of California Settlement in Northwestern New Brunswick (yes, Canada). A self-proclaimed expert in absolutely nothing, Francine draws her wisdom and wit from her life experiences of fairly major struggles and relatively minor victories. With her curious mind, along with her big and unstable heart, she has ventured on seemingly unconnected paths that end up at the same destination: Community Building – From The Inside Out. And on those paths, she has met people who, quietly or loudly, fuel the fire for change for the betterment of humanity. And it’s through the grace of these encounters that Francine is inspired to write.
