• 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 pilot episode of George R R Martin’s A Game of Thrones has been greenlighted by HBO (in the US).
Is this splendiferous? Yes, yes, a thousand times, yes!

A Game of Thrones is the first book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series – and it starts a story that really is amazing in its breadth and scope. Let’s just say, George doesn’t pull his punches.

So Daenerys, Jon Snow, the Starks, the Lannisters, the Tyrells … and the Others … will all be coming to a small screen near YOU in the near future. Of course., we know the near future is an intangible thing when it comes to the GRRM *g*.

If you haven’t yet read A Game of Thrones, put your latest book down and get a copy, because it’s incredible, unputdownable, and GRRM features on the top five list of numerous excellent authors. You can Browse Inside the book electronically on the HarperCollins website.

And now the question is … who’s going to play Jon Snow? And Arya? And Sansa? And the Hound … and his hideous brother … and Cersei Lannister? And Jaime Lannister? I could go on.

  1. Hell yeah! This has the potential to be the most awesome TV series ever. These people also have the capacity to break my heart should it be done really shabbily, or if they take great licence with the story.

    I only have one word: Earthsea 🙂

    *all fingers crossed*

  2. Totally agree! My fingers crossed too – they should do an alternate cast list – ie. those who should NOT be considered 🙂
