• 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!



Catch up on last night’s chat at Fang Books

Kim Falconer was the guest of honour at the Fang Books chat last night – and what a wonderful chat it was!
Catch up on Kim’s notes here at her website

We had not one, not two, not three, but four Voyager authors there – Kim, of course, and Mary Victoria, Nicole Murphy and Tracey O’Hara (who was madly packing etc as she came to Sydney to do a signing at Galaxy today at 5pm). Plus there were editors, writers, booksellers (all of whom are readers!).

Thanks to Fang Books – Alison and Rosie – for organising the chat, and to everyone who came! The lucky winners of Path of the Stray and The Spell of Rosette will get their copies soon!

  1. It was fun! I had a great time 🙂

  2. I wish we could spellcheck the transcripts – I have abysmal typing skills at night 😉
    It was really fun and I am enjoying reading back on what I missed.

    • My spelling and grammar slowly degraded over the evening, especially when trying to type out the story of Plato’s take on agape while commenting on spiders, bilibraphilia and the number of books in one’s bedroom al la Feng Shui! Oi . . . I could have gone through and edited them but I thought, what the heck, this is the chat, no corrections 🙂

      It shows also how as writers we do NOT mimic speaking conversations writing dialogue! he he he Love all those starts and stops and incomplete sentences. What a fun night!
