As a self-confessed magazine addict, Fiona started working on teen bible Jackie at the age of 17, before becoming editor of the hugely popular more! magazine. There she dreamed up a perky regular feature called ‘Position of the Fortnight’, sold 400,000 copies a month and gave wings to a nation of ladettes. Nowadays, she is the author of 15 romantic comedy novels described as ‘wickedly entertaining’ and ‘downright hilarious’, including the best-selling The Mum Who Got Her Life Back (Avon), which celebrates the empty nester years. Here she talks triumphs, tribulations, tricky situations and baring (almost) all to her readers.
