Linda Frank began her professional career as reporter and editor at the Intermountain Jewish News in Denver before working in the investment sector with such firms as Smith Barney and RBC Wealth Management. She also operated her own marketing/public relations practice focusing on financial service clients and Southeast Asian trade consulting.
As a freelancer, she published business and travel articles in publications including The Asian Wall Street Journal and The Forward and produced and hosted a cable TV show. Linda’s lifelong interest in 20th century world and Jewish history has given her two novels–After the Auction and The Lost Torah of Shanghai–a well-researched foundation for fictional plots pursued by her Jewish Miss Marple character, journalist Lily Kovner.
Nonprofit engagement, a constant throughout Linda’s career and recent retirement, has been highlighted by HIPPY (Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Parents), an international program she brought to Milwaukee in 1998 and continues to champion on the board of HIPPYUSA, which she served as Chair from 2013-15.
Linda and her husband, Eli, have two married sons and a granddaughter.
