Larry Don Frost grew up in Benton, Arkansas, working in his father's furniture store. At Arkansas State Teacher's College (B.S.E. 1965) he lettered in track four years and was Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference champion in the half mile in 1964. He taught English and journalism at Wynne and then at Crossett. He took his Master of Arts degree in English from the University of Arkansas in 1970 and his Doctor of Education in the College Teaching of English from Texas A&M Commerce in 1978.
Frost taught American Literature, Science Fiction and "every other English course in the catalog" at Henderson State University from 1970 until 2001, when he lost his teaching voice to throat cancer and radiation treatments and took early retirement. For thirty-one years he co-sponsored HSU's literary magazine PROSCENIUM.
Since retiring to his home in Bismarck, Frost has written his first novel, FEUD, set in South Arkansas, and is working on two others. The manuscript of FEUD is in New York "seeking a sponsor." When not writing, he is fishing on Lake DeGray or hunting deer, turkey and wild hogs in the Ouachita River bottoms.
Frost's wife Lorene teaches Enlish and speech at Bismarck High School, and his daughter Laura Fry (a graduate of Henderson State University's Master of Liberal Arts program) is working on her Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Arts at Ohio University.
