Kiss and Tell | Meet Fleur McDonald

In Interview by RWA Blog Coordinator2 Comments

West Australian author Fleur McDonald has a head full of stories and a heart that gravitates toward social issues. Fleur’s rural romance and women’s fiction novels have sold over 500,000 copies, and she takes her role as an advocate for women just as seriously as her writing. A Western Australian representative for Australian Women in Agriculture, a working member behind the scenes on the National Rural Women’s Coalition and a Rotarian, Fleur is also the founder and chair of a not-for-profit organisation called Breaking the Silence which helps families affected by domestic violence.
