About Me

I'm Fiona L Brown. Author of books and various other written things. Academic Researcher (PhD) with a particular focus on stories told through self-narrative and in relation to trauma using a feminist and intersectional lens and autofiction as a mode. I also lead on development and delivery of Business and Creative Industries programmes and have a keen interest in the use of Writing as an Creative Therapy, facilitating workshops for both adults and children. Based in Essex/London, I live with my husband, children, dog and 3 elderly cats.
