• Fiona McIntosh: Voyager Author of the Month

    Fiona McIntosh was born and raised in Sussex in the UK, but also spent early childhood years in West Africa. She left a PR career in London to travel and settled in Australia in 1980. She has since roamed the world working for her own travel publishing company, which she runs with her husband. She lives in Adelaide with her husband and twin sons. Her website is at www.fionamcintosh.com.

    Her latest book, The Scrivener's Tale, is a stand-alone and takes us back to the world of Morgravia from her very first series, The Quickening:

    About The Scrivener's Tale:

    In the bookshops and cafes of present-day Paris, ex-psychologist Gabe Figaret is trying to put his shattered life back together. When another doctor, Reynard, asks him to help with a delusional female patient, Gabe is reluctant... until he meets her. At first Gabe thinks the woman, Angelina, is merely terrified of Reynard, but he quickly discovers she is not quite what she seems.

    As his relationship with Angelina deepens, Gabe's life in Paris becomes increasingly unstable. He senses a presence watching and following every move he makes, and yet he finds Angelina increasingly irresistible.

    When Angelina tells Gabe he must kill her and flee to a place she calls Morgravia, he is horrified. But then Angelina shows him that the cathedral he has dreamt about since childhood is real and exists in Morgravia.

    A special 10th Anniversary edition of her first fantasy book, Myrren's Gift, will be released in December!



A Successful First Voyager Book Club

Click here to visit Karen Miller's websiteLast night we had the first ever meeting of the Voyager Book Club, and a rousing success it was!

We had the luck to actually have the author of the first book present, K E Mills, author of The Accidental Sorcerer. We started off by discussing the upcoming books in the Rogue Agent trilogy – which might give you an idea of how much everyone enjoyed The Accidental Sorcerer, as we would all like to read more.

We discuss all manner of things, from the main themes of the book (for example, the way almost all of the characters are in disguise, one way or another), to what constitutes actual ‘evil’, to the best actors to play key roles in a film version of the book!

If you’re interested in taking part in further book club sessions, please visit the message board at Voyager Online.

Thank you to Nyssa from http://aboygoesonajourney.com for providing us with a chat room to have the discussion.

AlannaFor those of you interested in reading more from K E Mills, her first series (written as Karen Miller) is called Kingmaker Kingbreaker and starts with The Innocent Mage (I couldn’t resist putting up the Spanish publication image) and ends with Innocence Lost. Her second series, The Godspeaker trilogy, begins with Empress of Mijak, continues with The Riven Kingdom and concludes with Hammer of God (which is out in June).

  1. I was one of the people on the Book Club and it certainly was a great night. I also wanted to say more but I will do so here; if it is alright.

    K. E. Mills really shows all the aspects of each character really well that it is compelling and very much an eye-opener; if you want to read it for fun and enjoyment. For me it was for two reasons, enjoying it as a reader and as an aspiring writer for the shear brilliance of plot, after plot and even the unsuspecting ending is very timeless and very much a freshness that a fan would love.

    That is what I thought of novel while I was reading it.
