• 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!

     

     

Supanova hits town

Well, another Sydney Supanova has come and gone. The geeks have signed off from their RPGs to put on their costumes, the 501st Legion have polished their storm trooper armour and the fans have come out in droves to meet Lou Ferigno (the Hulk), Michael Winslow (Police Academy) Charisma Carpenter (Buffy, Angel), Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse, Buffy), Summer Glau (Terminator, Firefly) Chaske Spenser and Mark Lutz (Twilight) and a whole bunch of other celebs that I’m about to go and have dinner with (she says, shamelessly name dropping…hehehe)

Got to meet heaps of fans over the weekend, and if only Borders had copies of the Legends of Australian Fantasy anthology there, I could have sold squillions of them! Oh well…

Only down side was that I ended up with laryngitis, too, which meant cancelling the master class. I still sound like someone has sandpapered my throat and then applied an acid rinse, but I’m hoping a few days in Perth with my sister will give me time to recuperate before we do it all over again next weekend. If you’re coming to the Perth Supanova and you want to bring books in, I’m more than happy to sign them.

In the meantime, I have to go now. Did I mention who I’m dining with this evening…. *g*

Don’t miss out if you’re in WA – Jennifer Fallon will be appearing at Supanova, Perth, this coming weekend! Too far away? Get acquainted with Jennifer’s latest story ‘The Magic Word’ in the Legends of Australian Fantasy collection.
