• 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!



This is about Spiderman so it’s relevant to the blog

Thailand: Fireman becomes Spiderman to rescue a child …

Personally, I’d like a fireman dressed as a fireman to rescue me, but I’d accept Spiderman too, didn’t say the Captain.

Thanks Tim for the link.

  1. You’re welcome.
    Accept Spiderman for a rescue, ‘didn’t say the Captain” : LOL. 🙂

    Here’s a [fairly clean] fireman story in return:

    One night in England during WW2, 2 members of the Women’s Aux. Air Force [WAAFs] were sneaking back to their base outside a big town and had to climb over the wire to avoid awkward questions at the guard post.
    At the top of the fence, the first one to climb says to her friend still on ground: “Ooh, I feel like a fireman!” Her practical friend just
    asks: “where are you going to find a fireman at a time like this?”


    • In that story I would definitely be the practical friend. Tim, I won’t regale you with all my firemen stories but it’s the only time I’ve ever been happy to stand on the street at 11:30pm in my pyjamas with my entire building while a false alarm goes off. Phwoar. Sometimes they come to work (okay once) and the building almost tips over because most of the ladies (which is about 90% of our population) are following them at not-a-distance. 🙂
      Sometimes they shop at our local supermarket, still in UNIFORM. Erm, where was I?
