Fleur McDonald's Bio

Fleur draws inspiration from having lived and worked for much of her life on farms and now owns 4050ha across regional WA.

Having written twenty novels, most of them featuring her leading detective, Dave Burrows, Fleur continues to write two books a year, releasing one in April and one in November.

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 an energetic kelpie, Jack, and a couple of young adults who come and go as they please.

Speaking Gigs

Things I love to talk about are:
