Fiona McIntosh was born in Brighton, England in 1960. At the age of nineteen, Fiona travelled first to Paris and later to Australia, where she has lived ever since. In 2007, she released her first crime novel, Bye Bye Baby, under the pseudonym of Lauren Crow. Fiona has written many series and works of short fiction and considers herself a fantasy writer, who has a passion for coffee, baking and an addiction to chocolate. When she is not globetrotting, Fiona lives in South Australia with her very patient husband and their twin sons. Fiona and her family share their lives with a bossy mini foxy terrier and a very barmy border collie.
