Fiona Graph was born in Sydney and travelled before settling in London. She worked variously as a psychologist, for an LGBT organisation and as a librarian, before ending up at the Foreign Office. Her youthful interest in writing came back strongly about five years ago. Fiona’s first book, praised by Helen Pankhurst as ‘an uplifting story which manages to address important and universal themes around vulnerability and courage’, was published in October 2020. She is interested in queer history, particularly early 20th century, as well as photography and swimming. A second novel will be published at the end of 2021.
