Fiona is the author of three novels - Fearless (2016) Wife on the Run, (2014), The Mothers' Group (2012) - and a memoir, Love in the Age of Drought (2009).

She is published by Allen & Unwin and Pan Macmillan in Australia, with translations of her work sold into the Netherlands, France, Germany and Spain.

She has qualifications in the humanities and social sciences and, a long time ago while studying, once worked as an Indonesian translator, a masseuse and a spruiker of fruitcakes (not all at once).

A lover of travel, Fiona recently spent three years in Indonesia with her husband and three children.

She now lives in Sydney, but has itchy feet.

Fiona Higgins and 11 other people liked Julie Parks's review of The Spite Game:
The Spite Game by Anna Snoekstra
"This was very interesting, and more YA than adult because most of the story was in flashbacks.

It would've been much better as a book if it was actually YA story because like many other reviewers noted, the main character seems a bit stuck back in ti" Read more of this review »

“Paula laughed, remembering more of her mother's words: Better to be unhappy in a Mercedes-Benz than unhappy on a bus. To which Paula had always responded, I'd rather be happy.”
Fiona Higgins, Wife on the Run

“Paula had never tired of the road and its secrets: the petrol stations manned by friendly country folk, the sugary treasures hidden in milk bars, the deserted public toilets attached to grassy picnic areas in quiet, shady gullies. Meat pies and cream buns, Big Ms and barley sugar. Her father’s tuneless whistling accompanying Bing Crosby cassettes, the relaxed look on her mother’s face, Jamie’s endless backseat tournaments of I-Spy, Twenty Questions and Thumb Wars. The back aches, the bursting bladders, the bush wees. The exquisite limbo of transit, the mysteries of dirt roads in indeterminate locations. The feelings of optimism and anticipation on departure, rivalled only by the tedium of the return trip.”
Fiona Higgins, Wife on the Run

“We’re all crazy, Hamish thought, watching the German straddle his heavily laden bicycle and push off towards the road. Every single one of us, thinking we’re so damn important.”
Fiona Higgins, Wife on the Run
