• 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!

     

     

Live chat with Sara Douglass right now at Flycon

Come and join us (8am Sydney)

in which … Sara talks about putting in solar airport lights on her cat’s cat run walkway … which is a thing of beauty by the way, I recommend going and having a look at it:

And lots of other things of course – at least one of which can NEVER be repeated – so if you weren’t there you have just missed out on a TOP secret! Let that be a lesson to all of you who like to sleep in on Sundays!

  1. The house&garden plan: that is a truly spectacular set of enclosures for cats!

  2. It really is! And she’s considering an extension, she said in the chat 😀

  3. My cat would just sit on the floor of the first branch of it (he doesn’t know about “up”) but… that is truly amazing and WHAT a garden!

  4. It’s wonderful – the whole website for the house & garden is great. And makes you understand why Sara has her rake squad 🙂

  5. I never even thought of that side of it. Very good point. Looks like a very healing space to be in and I can see how she came up with the rake squad concept. Unfortunately I missed the chat this morning – was up late at some other chats last night. Really enjoying Flycon!

  6. Vertigo, how did your cat reach maturity without discovering UP?

    It was great chatting with Sara. Her spirit and wit are golden.

    🙂

    Flycon Rocks!

  7. Kim, it is a mystery, but I am happy to keep it that way as it made cat-proofing my courtyard really simple (and apparently entirely unnecessary). I think “up” falls under the “far too much effort” category. Makes him an ideal paperweight, however.

    Meanwhile… I just had the shock of my life when Megan Lindholm/Robin Hobb popped into the chat I was in… then of COURSE it timed out.

  8. Oh I can picture the feline paper weight! 🙂 That’s a wonderful image.

    And Robin popped in as it timed out!!! Holy typical Technology!

    I’m off to Mythology and Science Fiction at 7pm and Writing and Gender at 10pm. Might see you there!

    🙂

  9. Will be at the mythology one for sure! Enjoy… am currently in the middle of a completely ludicrous chat about where ideas come from between Dave Freer and Jenny Fallon… shampooed lions anyone?

  10. Hey Vertigo!

    I saw you at the Mytho/SF! Missed the Shampooed lions but caught the Historical Fantasy with Marie Brennan, Amanda Pillar!!!

  11. Hi Kim, saw you, too. Nice chatting near/with you! My brain was too fried to catch up with conversation by then. I am sure I have read many mythological sci fi books, but they all flew out of my head when I logged on!
