Fiona Kirkman

Fiona lives in the beautiful city of York in United Kingdom with her husband Tony and son Daniel and a handful of small easy to look after pets.  

She works part time and loves to be a wife and mum. Loves reading, cycling and walking, not all at the same time though!  

She wrote Harriett the Elephotamus after watching her son Daniel growing up with a condition called Neurofibromatosis 1 and wondering if this made him feel different from his peers without the knowledge or confidence to speak out or just accepting his wonderful differences.  

Fiona loved reading to Daniel when he was smaller and watching him gaze off knowing he was not just listening to the story but watching it in his imagination.
