• 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!

The five special edition Voyager 15 hardbacks

When we wrote to Linda, this was her response (which she has kindly let us post here):

My gosh!!! Thank you, Thank you…..
I am sitting here shocked, excited and one very, very, very happy lady!!!!
I am sooooo happy!!!!!
I am a true book collector and I have thousands of hardback Harper Collins/Voyager books (and working my way through reading the paperback versions – yes I buy hardback and paperbacks of the same book/author) – you have chosen great authors!!!

I’m not sure how I am going to get all these signed!!! AussieCon4 was great because I got a lot of them signed but still a lot of my favourite authors weren’t there – Sara Douglass would have been great and Robin Hobb and especially Raymond Feist!!! I LOVED meeting Peter Brett – what a great 2 first novels… I look forward to reading the Kylie Chan book – a new author for me…

Thanks again!!

Linda

We think she was the right choice to win, don’t you? But it wasn’t an easy decision and we’d like to thank everyone who took part in the competition on the blog, Facebook and Twitter, and who have made sure that Voyager reached fifteen years young and will continue on into the next fifteen!
