Fiona Longmuir was born in Paisley, Scotland. Shortly after, she picked up a pencil and never really put it back down. She writes stories about stubborn, oddball kids, having had a lot of personal experience in this area. Her novels have been shortlisted in the Bath Children's Novel Award and the Joan Aiken Future Classics Prize. Fiona now lives in Ireland with her wonderful partner and their very surly rabbit. Her first MG novel, Looking for Emily, is published by Nosy Crow, and her second novel is forthcoming in 2024.
