• 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. HURRAY!!! So well deserved!

  2. That’s wonderful Mary and Frank! Congratulations!!! xxx

  3. Well done both of you! And especially you, Mary. We met at WorldCon, didn’t we? [Apologies; I must have met a hundred people there and I’m horrible with names, but I remember this really nice author who was at the Voyager dinner. 🙂 ]

    • Thanks so much, KJ! Yes, we met at WorldCon, at the Voyager dinner and also at the party. Never fear, I’m also horrific with names, but could draw you a sketch of everyone I met… 😉

      • Ahah! I was 99% sure it was you, but I didn’t want to embarrass myself. Yeah, I remember you very well. You recommended that bookbinder to me, didn’t you? I’m afraid he never wrote back. Ah well.

  4. Oh noes, KJ! He never responded – that’s a real shame. Jim’s a hard man to pin down… but then there’s always the possibility your message fell into a spam box. Would you like me to chase it up?
