Felicity was born in Germany and attended boarding school in the UK while her parents travelled the world with the British army.
She thinks the long boring plane trips home played an important part in helping her to develop her creative imagination.
Felicity settled with her parents in Western Australia in 1976, became a nurse, married young and had three children.
Not surprisingly, it took ten years to complete an Arts degree (English lit) at UWA.
In 1990 Felicity and her family moved to a small farm 40 kilometers NE of Perth where she established a Suffolk sheep stud,
reared orphan kangaroos and embarked upon a life of crime writing.
