About the Author
Fiona McCallum was raised on a cereal and wool farm near Cleve on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula and remained in the area until her mid-twenties, during which time she married and separated. She then moved to Melbourne and on to Sydney a few years later.
An avid reader and writer, Fiona returned to full-time study as a mature-age student and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in professional writing and editing and a second major in history in 2000. She then began a consultancy providing writing and editing services to the corporate sector. While studying, and then working, Fiona found herself drawn to writing fiction where her keen observation of people and their everyday lives could be combined with her love of storytelling.
Now a full-time novelist, Fiona writes heart-warming stories that draw on her rich and contrasting life experiences, love of animals and fascination with human nature. Her first novel, Paycheque, was published in 2011 and became a bestseller. In the nine years since, Fiona has written another ten bestselling novels: Nowhere Else, Wattle Creek, Saving Grace, Time Will Tell, Meant To Be, Leap of Faith, Standing Strong, Finding Hannah, Making Peace and A Life of Her Own. The Long Road Home is Fiona's twelfth novel.
Fiona currently resides in suburban Adelaide.

This book is ideal for those that need encouragement and support in life when they need it.
When Alice received a phone call from a well-known real estate agency, with an offer for her as a PA to Carmel Gold, one of the partners, Alice was ecstatic. She felt this was the career she’d been waiting for and she loved the thought of matching new homes with people. But gradually Alice lost her confidence while her brain felt scrambled. She couldn’t work out what was going wrong. And the way Carmel was with Alice had her dreading each day’s work. What could Alice do? Her best friend Lauren was her sounding board – but Alice’s unhappiness was the catalyst.
A Life of her Own is another heartfelt and poignant novel by Aussie author Fiona McCallum which I thoroughly enjoyed. It’s set in Melbourne and shows sides of people we don’t often see, but also unfortunately, sides we do see far too often. Bullying, manipulation, intimidation, narcissism – all found a place in A Life of her Own. But there was also kindness, caring and support as well. An excellent novel, A Life of her Own is one I have no hesitation in recommending. And I love the cover 😊
