Hi, I’m Fiona, writer, mother, trouble-shooter, dog walker and the owner of a myriad of other job titles, some of which I didn’t volunteer for. I also have a habit of escaping into a book whenever possible, often Jane Austen, but generally anything happy that makes me smile. My taste in reading can be eclectic, however and I read many different books, from Thomas Hardy to contemporary fiction.
More years ago than I care to count, I studied a BA in Combined Arts at the University of Durham and then went on to take an MA in English at Oxford Brookes University. My MA Dissertation was quite radical at the time, ‘Jane Austen and The Masculine Image.’ Happy times indeed – I would love to go back to those carefree days.
Recently I have also written my first book as Chloe James, “Love in Lockdown”, A joyful love story set against the backdrop of the pandemic.
