Fiona McQueen is a medical doctor and university professor who changed career direction seven years ago and moved away from the city to live with in beautiful Glenorchy, a small town in the alpine region of the South Island. The surrounding landscape was used as the background for much of The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.
While continuing her medical specialist work, Fiona has begun a new career as an author.
She is a committed environmentalist, enthusiastic tramper, yoga and meditation practitioner, herbalist and mother and has had a lifelong interest in children’s literature. Fiona’s interests in Celtic art, magic and spirituality connect with her ancestral ties to the western isles of Scotland.
Her previous books include Roderick and the Wizard of Endor (2019).
