Fiona is a British-Australian author, now living on the Central Coast, NSW.

As a graduate of the University of Life, Fiona draws on her many job roles (at least 28!), travel experiences and love of storytelling, to give students new perspectives and inspire them to celebrate life’s twists and turns in story.

Fiona has floated in the Dead Sea, climbed the Sydney Harbour bridge, given guided tours in Holland and fallen in love with all things Greek during her two years in Athens and Skiathos. Her most special travel experience was in Myanmar where she visited the place where her Granny was born.

Amongst her myriad of interesting jobs, Fiona worked as a television colourist on Home & Away, This is Greece and Secrets of Britain’s Great Cathedrals. She has works in several anthologies for children, is a role model for Books in Homes, and coach with the Harding Miller Education Foundation.  As the Children and Young People’s Program Manager for the Words on the Waves Writers Festival, Fiona enjoys creating diverse programs to engage students and enhance their connection to literature and love of learning.

Fiona loves storytelling in all forms, especially theatre, television and books. Being Jimmy Baxter is her debut middle-grade novel.
