About Fleur McDonald

Having sold over 600,000 copies of her books, she has solidified her position as one of the country’s favourite storytellers.

One of Australia’s leading rural literature authors, with her books becoming best sellers almost as quickly as they hit the shelves, Fleur draws inspiration from having lived and worked for much of her life on a farm – including early life on her parent’s property in regional SA, and more recently on her 8000 acre property in regional WA.

Fleur McDonald is a highly sought after guest speaker. Fleur not only is available to present on the topic of writing, but also across areas she is most passionate about. This includes country life, autism, domestic violence and her non for profit organisation DVassist which tailors Domestic Violence services across Australia.

About Detective Dave Burrows

Tough, loyal, and full of integrity, he’s a formidable Detective. Dave Burrows is a character who features in many of Fleur’s rural novels.

After writing several novels with Detective Dave as a secondary character, Fleur felt he really deserved his own series to shine.
Although Detective Dave appears in many of Fleur’s novels, it was in 2018, that he finally got the spotlight in Fool’s Gold, the first of what would become my young Dave series, following Detective Burrows early career and his first marriage. Four novels now document his adventures, with ‘Something to Hide’ bringing a particularly sticky investigation to a close.
