Hermína Franková (* 6. July 1928, Prague) is a pharmacist, Czech writer, author of books and screenplays. Her books were published in the Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland and France.
Hermína Franková is an author of books for children and adults. She graduated from Masarykova University’s School of Pharmacy. Her books were first published in the 60s. In 1968, she wrote a short story for children called “Witch on a Broomstick,” which was her inspiration to write the theme to a fantasy film comedy entitled “Girl on a Broomstick..” In the 60s, she also wrote a wide range of books for adults, some of which were published abroad. In the 70s, she was prohibited from publishing for political reasons, and so she worked as a pharmacist. In that time, she published several books under other authors' names. Beginning in the 80s, she began publishing once again under her own name. She returned to the theme of witches and wrote a screenplay for a mini-series of fantasy comedies entitled “Fire Women.” Starting in the 90s, she began writing again full-time. She participated in writing the screenplay for Cinelabyrinth for the exhibition in Osaka, Japan. Hermina Frankova loves Southern Bohemia, which has inspired several of her books such as Lake Boy (published also in France) and Hooray!Let's Travel the World (2014). Nowadays, she spends most of the time with her family. She has two daughters and three granddaughters
