Frank C. Clifford (born 13 April 1973) is a writer, columnist, teacher and a consultant in astrology and palmistry based in the UK.[2] Named after his father Frank Clifford, and the Irish revolutionary James Connolly, Frank is the son of an Irish union Socialist who later became a well-respected personal injury solicitor. According to his book, 'Palmistry 4 Today', after an unusual early education at a Hindu Secondary School (from age 9 to 12) and being inspired by his mother to visit various astrologers and psychics, Frank began teaching himself astrology at age 16 and took up palmistry a year later. He wrote and self-published his first book (a collection of astrological data and profiles) at the age of 23.

Since then, his media work has ranged from working with Universal Studios and casting directors, to giving an astrological perspective on Little Britain for Channel 5 and being employed by The Sun to locate the whereabouts of the then-missing Saddam Hussein. He has been profiled in The Daily Express, The Daily Mirror, Good Health and The Guardian.[2] Frank's TV appearances have included interviews on Open House with Gloria Hunniford (Channel 5), The Russell Grant Show (Sky One), Dating the Enemy (ITV), plus interviews and phone-ins on numerous BBC radio stations. In April 2007, Frank was seen on Sunshine, a behind-the-scenes documentary on the Danny Boyle film. In July 2009, he contributed to the BBC Radio 4 show The Inconstant Moon written and narrated by Jeanette Winterson.
