Fiona dropped out of school aged fifteen, because being the consummate rebel, she hated it! After becoming a single parent she decided to return to education, graduating in 1996 with an honours degree in primary education. Ah, the irony!
As soon as she graduated she packed everything she owned into her Renault 11, including her daughter, two dogs and a cat, and headed off to Estonia to become an international school teacher.
After working abroad for fifteen years, predominantly in Eastern Europe, she returned to Scotland where she now lives with her rescue Springer Spaniel, Brockie, and Fingal the Portuguese rescue cat.
