I’m Fiona McLaren and I’m a Scottish Young Adult author writing about magic and secrets, witches and ghosts, and the blurred line where fantasy and reality meet (or collide!). The characters that live in my head are equal parts bold, whimsical, misunderstood, diverse, and in search of answers. Answers to what? To anything and everything.

As for me, I’m made of equal parts curious, inspired, questioning, water, and Cyprus sun (and yes, Scottish cold!)

Writing isn’t just a way of life, it’s a way of being. It demands your life, and I fully intend to give myself to it. And one day, I hope my writing will make you think as much as it does me! And what does writing make me think?

That life isn’t a crossroads. It’s a universe – external and internal. There are no paths. Just where you choose to go.

I’m looking forward to getting to know you!

P.S. I run a blog on the site looking at both all things magical, fantasy, and spooky, as well as all things writing!
