Personal Page for Frank D. Granshaw

Annette (my wife) and I on the cliffs of Moher in Ireland


I am Frank Granshaw; a community college earth science instructor, the sole proprietor of a small publishing company, and a geologist.

In addition to all of these vocational roles I am a native of the Pacific Northwest, something of a traveler, a tinkerer, a little bit of a computer nerd, and a great lover of mountains and open space.
