With over 20 years experiences in sales and marketing at a national level, servicing some of the biggest retailers in Australia and the world (Big W, Kmart, Coles, Woolworths, Costco, Walmart, Carrefour), a passion for reading and writing, and a sound working knowledge of the publishing industry, Beyond Words Literary Agency can help you achieve your dreams.

Our vision is to find you the right publisher, handle the negotiations, and then to support you along the way with advice and mentoring to ultimately ensure that your writing career is everything it can be.

About Fiona.

At age 25 Fiona beat an aggressive form of Leukaemia, then successfully chased her dreams of becoming a rodeo rider and horse trainer. With a passion for reading and writing, she felt the need to write about her amazing experience, and in 2013, became a published author with her autobiography, My Wild Ride (Allen & Unwin). 

She has an Associate Degree in Arts / Education with an English major and is working towards a dual Bachelor’s Degree in Arts and Education. Fiona has also had a successful career in Sales and Marketing at a national level and understands the importance of marketing manuscripts to their target audience.

 

This experience, coupled with her knowledge of writing and the publishing industry enables her to secure you the best deal, with the best publisher for your manuscript.  

Fiona's life experiences have taught her resilience, endurance, compassion and empathy. Fiona is a sought after key-note speaker. Her motivational talks centre on how to accept life's challenges, to appreciate the fragility of life and to make the most out of every day.
