Born in South Africa, now living in New Zealand, Fiona is a former GP who hung up her stethoscope ten years ago to pursue another longheld dream – to write. She has written a number of highly acclaimed short stories, and her debut novel novel, "Shifting Colours", was published in the UK in 2014 and in the USA in Oct 2015 under the title, "Another Woman's Daughter". Her second novel, " The Last Time We Spoke" was released in May 2016. When not juggling family life, or helping manage the charitable surgical service she and her husband established, she writes and loves it.
Nothing in Stan Andino's unremarkable life could prepare him for the day he discovers his wife in the living room, naked except for a black apron, bleaching out a stain in the carpet that only she can see.
A CT scan one week later explains the seemingly inexplicable; Carmen Andino has a brain tumour.
As Stan and their teenage sons grapple with the diagnosis and frightening personality changes in their wife and mother, Austin Lamb, close friend and local doctor, does everything possible to assist the family in crisis.
Months later, just when it feels as though life couldn't possibly get any worse for the Andinos, the body of Austin Lamb's wife Tibbie is discovered at the bottom of the Browns Bay cliffs.
