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

Fleur draws inspiration from having lived and worked for much of her life on farms and now owns 900ha property in regional WA.

Following the recent release of her sixteenth novel, The Shearer’s Wife, Fleur’s much-loved Detective Dave Burrows will return in April 2021 with his fourth rural fiction feature novel, Something to Hide.

Noisy Nights, the first of two children’s books was published by New Frontier Publishers in August 2016 and the second, What Does a Horse Say? came out in August 2018.

She lives in Esperance, WA with her two children, Rochelle and Hayden, a Jack Russell terrier, Rocket and an energetic kelpie, Jack.
