Fiona Reilly

Paediatric EM Consultant, Novelist & Adventurer

An irrepressible traveler with an infinite appetite, Fiona Reilly has spent her life traveling the world, eating her way across more than fifty countries. After moving to China in 2009, and unable to work in her usual job as an emergency physician, Fiona discovered a deep love of writing and storytelling.

She now divides her time between Australia and China, and between her two jobs – as a senior paediatric emergency physician at Brisbane’s Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, and as a novelist and food and travel writer for international publications. Fiona believes that medicine and a creative life are mutually enhancing, rather than mutually exclusive.
