• 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!

The Daughters of Moab

The Daughters of Moab

If you’ve been following the blog then you’ll know that Kim Westwood recently launched her first book The Daughters of Moab. Cat Sparks has put up some photos of the Sydney launch on Flickr, so check them out.

And it’s lovely to see some of the reviews that have come out in the papers.

Westwood has created a totally believable world, there is enough functioning technology to enable the action scenes to have some bite; there are weird sidebar characters and the references to our own recent history, the Stolen Generations for example, has strong resonances.

The prose is beautiful … it adds a surreal quality, enhanced by use of present tense, that reduces the tension and pace of the journey … a strong declaration of the arrival of a distinctive voice in Australian literature. Click for full Courier Mail review.

World, watch this space. Kim is coming to get you!
