I’m Fiona McLaren and I’m a Scottish children’s 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!)

My hope is that one day my writing will make you think as much as it does me! And what does writing make me think?

That life is a universe – external and internal. There are no paths. Just where you choose to go.
