• 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!



Are you game to eat like they do in Game of Thrones?

   The Gastro Park restaurant in King’s Cross Sydney are putting on an amazing Game of Thrones inspired menu designed by Chef Grant King next month from the 7th March to coincide with the DVD release of Season 1 of the TV show.

Featuring roast pork served on a mossy plank, mozzerella eyeballs, pepper raven’s feet and dragon egg desserts, all served by wait staff dressed as Westeros natives, it sounds like the perfect night out for any serious Song of Ice and Fire fans! I must admit, the eyeballs are kinda disturbing, but other dishes sound fantastic.

Most of the Voyager crew are keen to try it out, but would you? Let us know! Hopefully we’ll get a chance to go, and rest assured, we WILL blog about it if we do!

Check out some more photos here and read more about how they made the dishes here.
