Fiona Mayne, a Cornish graphic designer, writes under the pseudonym Vivian Mayne. Born and bred in the South West county of Cornwall, she moved to London as a young woman and later lived in South Africa, Germany, and Holland. She returned to her home country and the county of Cornwall in 1999 so that she could settle down with her son near her family.
She was inspired by her own personal circumstances involving unrequited love and began work on her first novel The Curse of Fin Milton a Paranormal Romance Book in 2000. Using many of the experiences from her own life, she formulated a fictitious world of hidden magic, a spiritual underworld and two families locked in conflict and turmoil over an act of revenge. She used the Kindle Direct publishing platform to self-publish her book in Kindle format during March 2012.
Fiona is now the Art Director for the US magazine Autism Science Digest: The Journal of AutismOne, but that hasn’t stopped her starting her next novel, which will be the follow up to The Curse of Fin Milton, with the working title of Bloodlines, the new book follows on from the events of the first novel.
