• 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!

     

     

About our Contributors

LYNNE LUMSDEN GREEN

So you’re into sci fi? But what about sci fact? Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction…

Each month our very own Voyager Science Queen Lynne Lumsden Green will bring you interesting, quirky and downright bizarre tasty morsels from the world of science. And its all completely, totally, 100% true!

I have completed both a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology (University of Queensland) and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing (started at the University of Queensland and completed at the University of the Sunshine Coast). Economically, this means very little, however I get to understand and laugh at a lot more science and literary humour – oh, and bragging rights. More importantly, I own a huge curiosity bump and suffer from the burning need to scratch it, and I am happy to share all the weird and wonderful science discoveries with the world. I have been writing the Science Page for over ten years. Please feel free to send me any questions via this site (Yes, I will accept bribes of chocolate). On a more literary note, I love to write Fantasy and Science Fiction stories both long and short, and I have had short stories published in several anthologies. My favourite authors are Isaac Asimov, Neil Gaiman, Diana Wynne Jones, Anne McCaffrey and the entire team of Voyager authors.
