“Odd ball”, “the quirky one” or “black sheep” are all badges author Fiona McLaren wears with pride. She is always looking for unique perspectives on common knowledge and loves to dig into history, myths, culture and science, or any mixture thereof. A passionate horse woman, she owns two beautiful horses and a German Shepherd, all of whom are known as her misplaced children.
Throughout her formative years, Fiona could often be found scribbling away in notepads, reading Encyclopedias or inventing things from toilet roll tubes and macaroni. Needless to say, her creative talents have now progressed into more literary endeavors.
She is a passionate writer, critique partner and animal lover. She divides her time between the wind-torn hills of her Scottish home, and her love-affair with the sun-filled island of Cyprus.
Fiona is represented for her YA Contemporary and her YA Gothic Horror by Jamie Bodnar Drowley of Inklings Literary Agency.
