A Brief Biography
THE STORY SO FAR...
Fiona Leitch is a writer with a chequered past. She’s written for football and motoring magazines, DJ’ed at illegal raves and is a stalwart of the low budget TV commercial, even appearing as the Australasian face of a cleaning product called 'Sod Off'. After living in London, Cornwall and Hastings, she's finally settled on the other side of the world in Auckland, New Zealand, where she enjoys scaring her cats by trying out dialogue on them and writing funny, flawed but awesome female characters.
Her debut novel 'Dead in Venice' was published by Audible as one of their Crime Grant finalists, while her short horror story 'Tinder' was selected for the Twisted 50 Volume 2 anthology, published December 2018. Her Westminster-set romantic comedy, 'Parliamentary Affairs', was recently optioned by an up and coming LA producer, and her action comedy ‘Lost in Berlin’ was a finalist in New York’s Athena IRIS Screenwriting Lab 2017. She’s also been shortlisted for the BBC Writers Room.
