• 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!

Spend an evening with Robin Hobb

The Inheritance


Robin Hobb is in Australia for Supanova, visiting Melbourne and Brisbane in April. She’ll only be making one brief appearance in Sydney, so if you’re a Sydneysider, book in for this event run by Dymocks North Sydney and held at the Dendy in Newtown.


Robin’s latest book is a compilation of stories written both by Robin Hobb and Megan Lindholm (her other writer self).  Last night, I finished reading the gorgeous Lavender story at the start of the book, which is written by Megan Lindholm, and I loved it just as much as I love any of Robin Hobb’s stories (although it made me want to cry **warning**! Each tale comes with an introduction written by Megan/Robin explaining where or how the story came to life … so don’t miss out when The Inheritance is released later this month. And to my fellow fans of the Farseer world …  you’ll find a Rain Wilds story in there.

  1. I LOVE the cover! Those cats are just wonderful! Who did the illo?

    Will The Inheritance be on Kindle? Oh but I think I want the physical book so I can have the cover on my table.

    🙂 Maybe a flight to Syd is in order!

  2. I wish more of these hotshot authors came to Canberra. But most of ’em hardly ever do! Canberra’s such a backwater town. Which is weird considering that it’s also the capital.

    Ah well. I’m sure I’ll meet Ms Hobb eventually. Gotta add her autograph to my special edition book, you know. 🙂
