Fraser was born in Carlisle in 1953, but moved to Glasgow shortly afterwards and was brought up there until her mid-teens, attending Glasgow High School for Girls. When she was 15 her father wrote the first book in the Flashman series, and the family moved to the Isle of Man, where she went to The Buchan School. She started writing professionally in 1992, before that she was a commercial lawyer, and before that an advertising copywriter.
Her first novel, The Pupil, was based on her time spent in pupillage, which is the training required to become a barrister. The novel was written largely from a male standpoint, and deals with the trials and fortunes of Anthony Cross during his six month pupillage at Caper Court, and the various characters he meets in the eccentric world of the Inns of Court in London. Chief among these is Leo Davies, an attractive, talented, charismatic and extremely successful barrister, who happens to be bisexual, and under whose spell Anthony quickly falls. 'The Pupil' can also be interpreted as a novel which comments upon the inequities and discrimination which exist in the legal world. This work became the foundation of the Caper Court series, which at present comprises seven novels: The Pupil, Judicial Whispers, An Immoral Code, A Hallowed Place, A Perfect Obsession, A Calculating Heart and A Breath of Corruption. In the later novels Leo, rather than Anthony, is the hero and the centre of attention.
She has also written six stand-alone novels; The Trustees, An Inheritance, Beyond Forgiveness, A Little Learning, Familiar Rooms In Darkness and A World Apart, which she describes on her web site as romantic fiction for the thinking woman.
