Fiona McAndrew | About the Author


Fiona McAndrew

 Fiona McAndrew has led a varied and at times controversial life. Although she is now a writer, in the past she was a model who regularly appeared in the British press and on the television.   She was also a life model for world famous artist Lizzie Rowe, and after her modelling career ended Fiona dedicated her life to campaigning for women with low self-esteem and body image issues. She has also been included in a book by her former doctor called “Dignity in Death”, which documented her worldwide campaign in support of him.

 We are not sure what Fiona McAndrew means by a controversial life however part of that may be transposed into her latest novel.

Move Over Calendar Girls, Its Time for the Adventures of Fifi

excerpt

When the film Calendar girls was released several years ago, I remember thinking that it was very funny but that it probably couldn’t be bettered. That was until I read Fiona McAndrew’s book Fantasies from the Kitchen Sink. Fiona is a new Romantic comedy writer who writes in a style that is quite similar to Jilly Cooper crossed with Victoria Woods. She is humorous, enchanting and adventurous. Her words flow with an easy to read style and I was able to complete this collection of short stories in 2 hours because I couldn’t drag my eyes away from the screen. I think this was because the story was so compelling.

Fantasies From The the Kitchen Sink is a story about the adventures of an ex-stripper called Fifi who makes a fortune writing her memoirs, and then moves to the genteel village of Dorking. She takes a cardboard cut out of Jean Luc Picard with her, and under his dictation she goes about causing chaos at the women’s institute.

First she gets the old men, who accompany their wives to a talk by Fifi, high on marijuana brownies and then she teaches the old ladies how to pole dance. And then after she causes all this chaos, she just jets away to Los Angeles to have a glitzy party with the stars.

After this point, however, things don’t go very well for Fifi. She loses her house because she has spent all her money, and has to return to her North East Home.

This story is a fun read and is full of laugh out loud moments. My favourite bit is when Estelle the drag Queen tells Fifi’s long lost love, to “Go away”, as he drives up in his limuosine, possibly to rescue Fifi from her new-found state of poverty. I thoroughly enjoyed the Royal Garden Party, too, and my favourite character was Fifi’s gay German agent Luka. His karaoke moment was hysterical.  read more here

Fantasies from the Kitchen Sink is an excellently funny book. It is fast paced, has a great storyline, and has very believable characters. Fifi is fun, vivacious and adventurous. My favourite part of the book is the bit where Fifi teaches the ladies at the women’s Institute to pole dance with disastrous results. Another favourite bit is Fifi’s Agent’s Karaoke moment at the Royal Garden Party. I could go on naming favourite bits all night, but I would ruin the book for you. So if you want to spend 2 hours of your life where you do nothing but laugh, buy this collection of short stories, and you won’t be disappointed.

This is a wonderfully funny, yet emotional book that leaves you wanting more. Fifi is an intriguing character with many layers to her personality and her supporting characters are excellent fun.
I hope to hear more from Fifi and what the future holds for her.
