• 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!

What’s your favourite romantic fantasy book?

What are your most romantic fantasy books? If we’re going for sexy romance then I think most people wouldn’t look past Eric and his cohorts in the Sookie Stackhouse novels. I know my personal favourite would be The Silver Metal Lover by Tanith Lee, one of the most romantic and lovely stories ever written (in this writer’s humble opinion). Also rather lovely are the romantic stories in Kristen Cashore’s Graceling and Fire. But don’t stop there, there’s a beautiful story about growing into relationships in Legends of Australian Fantasy … turn to Sean William’s story ‘The Spark’.

What are your romantic picks? And why? Is it the male or female character you love? Is it the build up of romance? Is it the moment they realise? What makes it romantic? Can you see it happening a mile away? When did you read the book? Why hasn’t anyone delivered me twelve dozen red roses this morning?
