About Fiona McArthur
In my other life from writing, and in my world as a wife, a mum and grandmum, I worked as a midwife. I’ve been a facilitator for a teenage mums group, have run parent groups, clinical midwifery education as my day job and baby catching when I’m blessed – all different aspects I love and loved and often include in my writing – because the power and strength in women of all ages continues to awe me. Then there’s some weekend obstetric emergency teaching that I adore that keeps me on my toes and lets me scoot all over our incredible continent with like-minded people.
My main focus in writing now, very happily, is with contemporary medical drama with Penguin Australia. I’m loving the wonderful friendships and the intergenerational rapport between my female lead characters, and I hope you do too. Every generation has so much to offer and of course, there will always be an uplifting ending. I do believe the world needs us to appreciate the inherent goodness and gentleness of people to counter the negatives we see every day in the news.
