T. R. Francis is the author of the Angelica Button fantasy book series, which is very popular among both children and adults in Springfield.


She appears in a picture on the cover of a book Angelica Button and The Dragon King's Trundle Bed as an old lady with her dog Galahad and makes Homer read another chapter without Lisa.

Lisa first encounters her at the Sitting with Dinosaurs show, where she is in a raptor costume. As soon as she notices her, T.R. Francis runs from her and Lisa has to chase her into her dressing room. After she catches up with her, Lisa tells her how she admires her. However, T.R. Francis destroys Lisa's illusions by telling her that writing tween novels are just for profit, much to Lisa's disgust and chagrin.

Behind the LaughterEdit

  • T. R. Francis is a parody of J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter book series.
  • In the episode "The Haw-Hawed Couple", Francis appears as an old lady in a picture of the book. However, in the episode "The Book Job", she is shown as an young woman. This is a major inconsistency between the two episodes.
    • Alternatively, it can also be seen as a sort of publicity stunt by divulging an entirely different image of the author in order to give readers a different first impression.
