• 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!

Your horoscope for the week beginning 2 March

Author of the Quantum Enchantment, Kim Falconer brings you Gaela-inspired horoscopes.

Enter Kim's website

RAM: Gear up for an increased tempo bringing opportunity for travel, business tours, or publication. Remember to look out the window from time to time. Thanks to the Interstate Highway System, it is now possible to travel from coast to coast without seeing anything. –Charles Kuralt

AUROCHS: The desire to commit to new goals, take on greater responsibility and be seen as capable drives your choices this week. See that you don’t lose sight of the importance of friends. When someone’s character is unapparent to you, look at their friends for clarification. –Japanese proverb.

TWINS: Perceived obstacles come your way and like an action hero, you conquer each consecutively. Check out the cheering section! I looked in the audience. There were no strangers. Everybody was singing and cheering and hugging. That was a beautiful picture to behold. –Celine Dion

COBRA: You may feel a little isolated this week, as if winter has come too soon. Not to despair. Stoke the fire, boil the kettle and bake some scones. Company is on the way! When so many are lonely as seem to be lonely, it would be inexcusably selfish to be lonely alone. –Tennessee Willimas

LION: Iridescent charisma and absolute charm has you getting your way and making everyone smile. They even offer a helping hand. A distant land or culture beckons and chances are good you will go! Great ability develops and reveals itself increasingly with every new assignment’ –Baltasar Gracian

CERES: Patience has worn thread bare thin leaving you in no mood to wait. Answers are needed and closure too, if applicable. Soon good news brings a reason to celebrate. Patience and perseverance have a magical affect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish. –John Quincy Adams

BALENCIA: Some aspects of your life have taken a hammering: home, relationship, career, automotive? A decisive action will straighten it out—self-Love. Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world. –Lucille Ball

SCORPION: Entanglements turn out in your favour this week. Reconciliation, agreeing to disagree or even trial separations all bode well for your blossoming future. Carry on! Moments of kindness and reconciliation are worth having, even if the parting has to come sooner or later. –Alice Munro

ARCHER: An unexpected event reveals a hidden aspect of your domestic life. You knew something was a little peculiar!  Communication is essential and harmony of voice and sound might be the medium. Music is the social act of communication among people, a gesture of friendship, the strongest there is. –Malcolm Arnold

SEA–GOAT: This is a good time to create an additional source of revenue outside of your comfort zone. Bills can pile high and debts tend to come due. Rise to the challenge with some creative ingenuity. Have fun with it! Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons. –Woody Allen

WATER–BEARER: Energized and inspired, you tackle projects with a sense of purpose. There are things to let go of and things to dust off and keep. Spotting the difference brings the greatest rewards. There are two kinds of people, those who finish what they start and so on. –Robert Bryne

FISHES: Careful observation of your partnerships, be they business or otherwise, could help evade troublesome disagreements. You can defuse potential altercations by being alert, sensitive, considerate and gracious. Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing. –Oscar Wilde
