    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.

    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!

Trees Looking up to the Sun by Anna Leah Designs

ARIES: This is a ‘financial new moon.’ If you want to increase your income or develop latent talents, you’ve all the support in the world, right here and right now!Ask what it is you want to be doing next year. The year after? Aim high! Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into. ~Wayne Dyer

TAURUS: The new moon in your sun sign heralds change! It’s a chance to take a good long look at the four key areas of your life – work, love, home, creative expression. How’s it all going? What would you like to be different. You hold all the cards! A hunch is creativity trying to tell you something. ~Frank Capra

GEMINI: The deeper, secret nature is rising with this new moon. Dreams speak volumes and things in the dark come to light. Invest in a dream/symbol dictionary! It’s a good time for getting in touch with what you really want though a little tricky for clandestine affairs. I allow my intuition to lead my path. ~Manuel Puig

CANCER: A social moon, perfect for making new friends, renewing contacts and getting together with likeminded others. Appreciate the invitations and feeling of warm inclusion. Also remember to enjoy the differences and the boundaries that lie between. A friend doesn’t go on a diet because you are fat. ~Erma Bombeck

LEO: The focus is on career and development in the public eye. If you think you don’t have what it takes, remember, desire trumps experience every time! I probably hold the distinction of being one movie star who, by all laws of logic, should never have made it. At each stage of my career, I lacked the experience. ~Audrey Hepburn

VIRGO: The best way to benefit from this new moon is to awaken the intellectual side of your life. It’s not about analyzing or judging but about becoming more aware, thoughtful and compassionate Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose – a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye. ~Mary Shelley

LIBRA: This new moon cues action and intention requiring bravery. By taking a risk, the energy shifts and away you go! The fact is, that to do anything in the world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can. ~Robert Cushing

SCOPRIO: The great arrow is pointing towards at joint project, a collaboration of spirit. The key is to not worry if the boat begins to rock. All is well, even now. Very well! If a relationship is going to be a living art form of truth, it always has to be on the edge of chaos, looking at everything fresh- again and again. ~Ram Dass

SAGITTARIUS: This new moon is a reminder to find joy in the little things – the gift that cost nothing but brings a smile. Fun is never dependent on tickets to Paris, you know. I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things… I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind. ~Leo F. Buscaglia

CAPRICORN: Consider your healthy ambition. Is it taking priority over food, sleep, exercise, joy? Are you taking care of your body? The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results. ~Anthony Robbins

AQUARIUS: The new moon will find you wildly, thrillingly voraciously ensconced at home. It’s not a traveler’s moon for you. The more one does and sees and feels, the more one is able to do, and the more genuine may be one’s appreciation of fundamental things like home, and love, and understanding companionship. ~Amelia Earhart

PISCES: This new moon is a megaphone for the changes you would like to create in your immediate environment, neighborhood or family. You have ideas. They’re perfect for you. Implement them now. Thinking small is not hard. It’s just a habit. A habit with consequences. Same as THINKING BIG. ~Andy Dooley
