Fiona Harper joined the RNA in 2005 and posted her first-ever completed novel off to the New Writers' Scheme hoping for a little constructive criticism. Much to her surprise and delight, after receiving a second read, her manuscript was sent directly on to Mills & Boon, who offered to buy the book the following week.
"Blind-Date Marriage", as it has been re-titled, will be published in December 2006 in the Mills & Boon Romance line. Her second book is due to be published in March 2007.
Fiona lives in London with her husband and two princess-wannabe daughters.
