For a more extensive bio…..
Growing up in Papua New Guinea without television, Fiona learned to read very early. One of her first teenage rebellions was refusing to go on a hike with her parents because she was half way through GONE WITH THE WIND.Fiona grew up in Papua New Guinea and learned to read very early as books were THE entertainment.
As an adult, Fiona read her way around the world always trying to read a book that related to where she was at the times…The Brontes in Yorkshire, Jane Austen in Bath, The Godfather in Italy, Michener in Hawaii…and so the list goes on.
The real world intruded on her life and she was forced to pull her nose out of a book and earn a living. Having read all the Cherry Ames books and grown up hearing stories about her mother’s nursing adventures she donned a white starched apron and followed the family tradition. Her favourite areas of hospital-based nursing are Midwifery, Accident & Emergency and Theatre. But preferring to be her own boss she quickly headed into community health and health education, enjoying the buzz of preventative medicine.
It was when Fiona was on maternity leave with her first child that she had the great idea that she could write a medical romance and work from home. It only took her ten years to sell a book! Click HERE to read her writing journey.

She attempts to juggle her writing career with her husband, a rambling garden with 80 rose bushes and two heroes in the making. And just like her heroines she’s found herself a wonderful life partner who puts up with her when she loses herself in a good book. She’s training up two sons to do the same:-)
