Previously, she was a senior writer at the Daily Mail, news editor at the Daily Telegraph, and chief reporter at the Mail On Sunday, where she won Reporter of the Year at the British Press Awards. Fiona lives in England, and her latest novel, Local Gone Missing is about Detective Elise King and her investigation into a man’s disappearance in a seaside town where the locals and weekenders are at odds.
