When she isn't being a pane in the glass, Fiona writes darkly humorous contemporary and paranormal fiction, almost always with a twist in the tail. As well as a couple of novels, her short stories have been published in anthologies and magazines, including Mslexia, Paragraph Planet, and The Library of Rejected Beauty. Her paranormal romp 'Got Ghosts?' is available now from Fox Spirit Books.

Fiona lives in a slate cottage within stone-throwing distance (never a good idea in Glass houses...) of England's largest lake with her husband, several pot plants and a vast collection of books. She enjoys history, gardening and photography, and rarely has her nose far from the pages of a book - or a cup of tea.

The Wainwright treasure hunt

I’ve always loved the Wainwright guides to the Lake District. My dad had the entire set and used them frequently to plot walks around the area, and as a kid I enjoyed poring over the maps and occasional sketches of sheep. As an adult that love has continued, and I’ve also discovered a rich vein of dry humour buried in the neat handwritten text.

An absolute gem of a book. I was a bit uneasy when I realised it was about a kidnapping but I needn't have worried because it's very much not your typical hostage drama thriller. Instead, it's a surprisingly gentle, life-affirming look at the things ...more

This is an enchanting book in every sense of the word. I loved the realistic characters, the satisfying plot and the slightly surreal dream sequences, and couldn't turn the pages fast enough. One or two minor niggles - a rather over-long description ...more

An amazing book. Five stars for the sheer use of language and the way the characters suck you into their lives so that you're no longer reading a book about them, you're right there with them in the same room. In fact they're not really characters, ...more
