Fiona worked in secondary schools in East Leeds as a classroom teacher, Head of Humanities and Head of Sixth Form and Assistant Headteacher for fourteen years, before leaving in 2013 to write and have more time to look after her three boys and elderly parents.

Since then, she has been employed as a consultant by schools throughout Leeds, universities and educational social enterprises; examined for OCR and AQA ; and successfully mentored young people through their critical exam years.

This work has allowed her to work more creatively and have a very unique insight into how a variety of schools work, what they offer and the pressures young people face. She is the current director of Student Navigator.
