• 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!

RAM: When the road gets rocky, one of the best antidotes is recalling a time when it was so and you totally handled it! Remember? ‘What would you call the highest happiness?’ Wratislaw was asked. ‘The sense of competence,’ was the answer, given without hesitation. ~John Buchan

AUROCHS: Family disputes can find their way into your home, even if you are playing it neutral. It’s not always ‘bad’ if things escalate, as long as you can let go. Don’t carry a grudge. While you’re carrying a grudge, the other guy’s out dancing. ~Buddy Hackett

 TWINS: The temptation this week is to justify. If you must, it’s best to avoid using long, drawn out explanations with multiple adjectives and gesticulating. Simple rocks! The best reason for having dreams is that in dreams no reasons are necessary.  ~Ashleigh Brilliant Continue reading
