• 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 latest Specusphere is out


Have a look at the editorial, by Astrid Cooper, entitled Life, The Universe and Everything. Astrid talks about the concept of sentience, which our own Kim Falconer discussed on the blog, in relation to the terrible bushfires that recently swept through parts of Victoria.

There’s also a list of our latest releases, and a review of Me Cheeta ‘… From his time as an actor, through to his charity work, and current career as an abstract artist (his “apestract” paintings are available to buy), Cheeta is a true professional, except when he’s drunk, which back then was most of the time. Now a diabetic living with his carer Dan Westfall, Cheeta can add author as another string to his already well strung bow.’

And there’s plenty more – so click on the cover above to go to the Specusphere.
