Fiona has always been passionate about history. She studied Ancient and Medieval History and Archaeology at Liverpool University, and some of her favourite authors include Dorothy Dunnett, Mary Renault, Mary Stewart, and Daphne du Maurier. She particularly loves anything that weaves different time periods together (such as du Maurier's The House on the Strand or Philippa Pearce's Tom's Midnight Garden) or introduces an element of the supernatural (Stewart's Thornyhold). Her own writing reflects this, often focussing on time, and how the past sends echoes into the present (which helps to explain all the clocks in her graphics!).

Several of Fiona's books explore the world of ghosts and/or the slippage of time. In December Roses a soldier wounded in Northern Ireland recuperates in an army rehab unit with a beautiful garden where past and present collide to startling effect. In Ghosts Galore, a clumsy medium awakens a malovelent spirit with hilarious results. And in vampire romance Echoes of Blood, a lonely man is drawn to three mysterious men who have a unique take on history.
