• 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!

Pilgrims is already receiving raves from the critics:

‘This is is a darkly original new arrival on the Australian fantasy scene, and is well worth a look.’ Bookseller+Publisher

 ‘A vigorous, imaginative and original fantasy that will appeal to fans of the genre’ The Age.

‘Read Pilgrims you’ll be more than satisfied you did’ SSFANZ.

 ‘Will Elliot’s a great bloke … and his work is just incredible’ Small Picture Podcasts.

Not to mention some great reviews from readers themselves:

“Having never read a book by Will Elliott before, I wasn’t sure what to expect by this new series, but being a fan of fantasy fiction and a prodigious reader, I was more than willing to see if there were any new authors out there worth reading.  And clearly there are, as by only page 40, I was thoroughly engrossed in this book – to the extent that from then on, I’ve been narrating the storyline and reading out entire paragraphs to my non-reading friends, and furthermore, have determined that the next book I buy will be Elliott’s multi-award-winning ‘The Pilo Family Circus’.

Will Elliott’s work should be recommended to all those who love a good book. The characters are all realistic and well-rounded, the plot is fast and thrilling, and there is a large degree of originality, which, in my opinion, could well set Elliott up to become one of the great fantasy writers such as David Eddings, Raymond E. Feist, or Robin Hobb.’ Review from Sarah of Viking Booksellers
