About Fiona

Fiona McDonald is a classically trained artist whose passion for toys manifests itself in the compulsive making of dolls and puppets. Her life size cloth and mixed media figures have received international acclaim and are eagerly sought after by collectors (thank goodness because they take up a lot of room at home).

Fiona took time off from making things to have a passionate affair with the works of Dante Alighieri, the medieval Italian poet. This much needed intellectual stimulus has resulted in a frantic writing spree attempting to bring her two great loves together: literature and visual art. Incongruous as it may seem, BABES IN THE WOOL is one of several offspring to come from this union.

When Fiona is not writing or making things she teaches a special class of super naughty children of which she claims to be the naughtiest of all.

I’ve been a client of Isy’s since lockdown 2020, and I’ve found her to be incredibly approachable and supportive. In the course of two years, she’s negotiated seven book deals for me, and I know that she’s on my side when it comes to negotiations. I also find it reassuring that she keeps me informed on the latest on my projects. Finding Isy and Creative Authors has been really beneficial to my writing career!
