• 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!

  1. Looks like it could be fun, however the link to book tickets seems to be something else entirely…

    • Yes, the website has turned into something else altogether. I’ve put a note in the blog about the link as I assume they’re having issues of some sort (the link itself is definitely correct).
      Thanks!

  2. So, I’ve missed the early bird tickets due to the site being down, I hope it comes up soon so I can find out how much normal tickets are. I’m interested in going. Would it be normal to lug around a backpack full of books in case I meet an author who can sign them? I can’t see it going too well with the cocktail dress, haha. I suppose that isn’t the time/place for things like that, but it’s nice to wish…
