• 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!

     

     

Gaela-style horoscopes from Kim Falconer: Feb 2- 8

RAM: The power of optimism surrounds you. All you have to do is reach out for it and take hold. Consider what it is you truly want to create and think about it with intensity! “There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life”. – Federico Fellini

AUROCHS: You may look for evidence of love in concrete form, finding only insinuations, cryptic phrases and half-comprehended subtleties. Perhaps you are using the wrong medium to discover the truth. Love is blind. That is why he always proceeds with the sense of touch. – French Proverb

TWINS: Often we do not know what we are truly feeling about a situation until we take the next step. Hesitation comes in when we think too much—so don’t think too much! …then I did the simplest thing in the world. I leaned in and kissed him. And the world cracked open. -Agnes de Mille

COBRA: Too much talk and not enough action may keep you from experiencing the most sensual, non-verbal aspects of life. Love is not about the mind, unless you’re contemplating tantra. The anticipation of touch more than anything else is one of the most potent sensations on earth.– Richard J. Finch

LION: Looking for someone special in your life doesn’t begin ‘out there’. It doesn’t end ‘out there’ either. Curiously, physicists think there is no ‘out there’ at all! The special other lies within. We all do ‘do, re, mi,’ but you have got to find the other notes yourself. -Louis Armstrong

CERES: Everyone has crummy memories. We all have baggage from the past. The distinction lies in what we choose to dwell on—where we place our hearts. Oh my heart feels like a spring, and next to it lies my old deep sullen well; let it, I’m not drawing from it these days.-Rilke

BALENCIA: Much focus is on image right now: how to look, what to do, topics of conversation, places to go, people to see. None of it matters to love as the heart contains a world of different things. At this point in my life I’d like to live as if only love mattered. -Tracy Chapman

SCORPION: Communication come in many forms—from the subtle meaning between the lines of a text to the solid foundations of a mathematical equation. Some messages have a different flavour. In order to love simply, it is necessary to know how to show love.– Fyodor Dostoyevsky

ARCHER: It is nonsense to think that love is a singular concept encased in a single heart. Love is energy, incalculable, eternal—voracious in its longing for life, unforgettable in its expression. What are you waiting for?  A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle. – Erin Majors

SEA-GOAT: Falling in love is mania—not clinical madness but feelings that allow you to marinate in ecstasy. You’ll sigh, daydream and weary your friends. Confusion sets in as you miss appointments and not care because the soul awakens to love. I feel again a spark of that ancient flame. -Virgil

WATER-BEARER: Love is not always a soothing balm made up like a bed with fresh sheets. Sometimes it is a storm, a wild wind that blows our minds before reason. Perhaps you need to let it? I have never heard your name without a shiver half of delight, half of anxiety….-Edgar Allan Poe

FISHES: Part of the uncertainty of love is in knowing that we see not the mortal flesh and blood human being but the ineffable energy of the divine. Love is the way we touch the gods. For us, it is not easy to approach Goddesses in the beauty of their form. But you …. -Sappho
