Fiona McIntosh is a bestselling English-born Australian novelist, who likes to write fantasy, historical fiction, romance, adventure, and crime novels. She is known to have mind-blowing novels for children and adult readers. Some of the popular book series written by her include The Quickening series, the Luc & Lisette series, the Percheron series, the Valisar Trilogy, and the Trinity series. McIntosh likes to travel a lot. Most of her traveling is for gathering material and researching about locations for writing historical stories with international settings. McIntosh’s books are published all over the world and have been translated into multiple foreign languages. In 2014, McIntosh organized a tour to Provence and Paris following the worldwide success of one of her historical fiction series. This allowed her fans to come together and celebrate her success. The tour also helped to increase the popularity of McIntosh a lot more, and thereby increase her fan following to a great extent.

Author McIntosh was born in 1960 in Brighton, England and currently resides in Australia. She has traveled a lot and lived in many countries since she was small. Between the ages of 3 and 8, McIntosh lived in South Africa because of her father’s posting on international duty. When she was 19, McIntosh traveled to Paris and Australia. Since then, she has been living in Australia permanently. In addition to using her original name for writing novels, McIntosh used the pen name of Lauren Crow once for writing a crime novel called Bye Bye Baby. She dropped the pseudonym for the book’s republished edition and its sequel called Beautiful Death.

McIntosh considers her pathway to becoming a novelist as a curious engagement as she had to go through various other routes before ending up writing novels. Initially, she worked for several years in the PR department. Later, she was involved in working in sales and marketing in the travel industry. McIntosh has also spent 15 years working with her husband to run a travel magazine. She thinks she was fortunate that her first attempt at writing a creative story was noticed by a reputed publisher. Ever since, she has not looked back and has worked in a variety of genres, however, her interest lies particularly in writing historical adventure-romances and adult fantasy stories. McIntosh is still a globetrotter, but now her globe-trotting is mostly for researching for her upcoming books.

McIntosh divides her time between South Australia and Tasmania, whose peaceful surrounding suits her best to create her stories. South Australia is where she spends time with her family during her spare times. McIntosh keeps herself so busy with her work that she hardly finds any time for hobbies. The things that she likes to take up to get her mind off writing, including baking, exercising, and making coffee brew. She loves coffee and dark chocolates very much. McIntosh also likes to watch movies and read research books. Visiting Paris every now and then is something that doesn’t get bored of. She seems to be in deep love with the city. Another thing that McIntosh likes very much is being in touch with her fans. Interacting with them helps her to know their taste and develop her stories accordingly. She looks forward to writing many more exciting books for her readers in the upcoming years.

A very popular trilogy series written by author Fiona McIntosh is known as Percheron. Its fantasy novels were released between 2005 and 2007. McIntosh has set the stories of this series in an exotic world called Percheron, where gods prepare to battle for the future. The lead character, Lazar gets thrust into the epic battle along with his love interest named Ana. The other important characters mentioned by McIntosh include Boaz, Zar, Herezah, Pez, Eunuch Salmeo, Lyana, Maliz, etc. The debut book of the series is entitled ‘Odalisque’. It was released by the EOS/HarperCollins publication in 2007. The book opens by showing that slave traders capture Lazar in a desert. He fights and earns his freedom. Subsequently, Lazar is given the title of Spur and the charge of keeping the adopted city safe from enemies.

Zar Joreb, the ruler of Percheron, takes him as his confidant. But, when Zar Joreb dies, his 15-year-old son Boaz becomes the Zar. However, the control of power still lies in his cruelly ambitious and beautiful mother Herezah. Boaz has the support of Lazar and Pez. Later, Ana is brought to the harem of Boaz to please him. Surprisingly, both Lazar and Boaz find themselves attracted to Ana. But, she finds it difficult to bear the harem’s closeted world. Unknown to everyone, the gods are preparing for a cyclical battle with the intention of enmeshing the people in the palace. Lazar gears up to save Boaz from every danger and the city from the dangerous battle.

The second installment of this series is entitled ‘Emissary’. It was published by Harper Voyager in 2007. At the story’s start, it is mentioned that Percheron turns into a different place without the presence and guiding hand of Lazar. Boaz mistrusts his mother in the matters of administration, but is highly inexperienced to take independent charge. So, he decides to take counsel from Vizier, who seems to be having his own sinister agenda. Herezah longs for the love of Lazar and grieves his rejection and absences. She sets up a plot for destroying Ana. Herezah envies Ana’s closeness to Boaz because of which she is getting special treatment. Ana carries a lot of guilt. She transforms into a stunning woman and wonders about her future in the Percheron harem.

Lazar arrives on a secret island and slowly recovers from his wounds. No one seems to have any idea about the location of Lazar. As Lazar struggles to regain his health, Percheron faces the threat of a dangerous war. On the other hand, the gods continue to build their cyclical battle and the first disciple of the Goddess, Lyana, falls into the web of demon Maliz. Now, the future of both Lyana and Percheron depends on Lazar. His illness brings him a new gift, but he seems unaware of it. If he doesn’t take action soon and head for saving Percheron and Lyana, he might end up losing everything. Lazar hopes to get well soon and prevent the destruction of Percheron.

    Just finished reading The Tailor’s Girl, and it was one of those books hard to put down! I’m so glad Edie and Tom/Alex found each other again. Would have love a sequel to follow, as it’s hard to get into another book after this story!

  2. Denise Long: 2 years ago

    Fiona is an excellent author I start on the first page of many of her books and I cant put them down till the very end whether they end happy and sad I still cry as they get to my heart. I have another 4 here now that I will devour over a week. Keep up the excellent writing.

    Hi Fiona

    I have just finished reading the Champagne Wars and the Tea Gardens.
    I have really enjoyed both books, and the characters. I was wondering If you have thought about writing a story about Charlie Nash as I am sure a lot of readers would like to know more about how his life goes. it would be interesting to see if he ends up catching with the nurse who promised to dance with him after the war.

    I wondering if you have thought about writing a sequel to the Tea Gardens. Isla and Saxon are perfect match, and it would be interesting if a story could be written that brings these star crossed lovers together some how.

    I know they are all beautiful characters that you have bought to life in these books, but to a reader they have really come to life.

    An acquaintance from Australia was reading The Champagne War and spoke highly about the author. That was last year and I was immediately hooked. Completed six more of her books to date and have ordered four more so to keep going until her latest. The Tailor’s wife is released in the US. Fiona McIntosh is a exceptional writer and her works will soon be on the big screen. Her lovely personality is reflected in her work. What not to Love!!

      If you haven’t already read her first book..”Fields of gold” you should give it a go. After reading this many years ago, I was hooked on her as an author and have since read quite a few of her others…never disappointed !!!

        Hello Graeme. Which books of Fiona McIntosh follow on from each other please. I have just finished “The French Promise” following on from “The Lavender Keeper”. Thank-you very much. Jude

        • Graeme: 2 years ago

          Hey Jude (sorry I’m sure you’ve heard that a million times before),

          Those two books are the only two books within the Luc & Lisette series. No follow-up to them.

        • Irene whight: 1 year ago

          Hi Fiona I’ve just finished reading two of your books for the second I would love to see them on the big screen. The Tea Gardens was so beautiful, and the Pearl Rhief..what brilliant stories. Of course, I get very little done when I’m engrossed in your books. They have totally spoiled me with other authors who I just can’t get interested in. Keep them coming please.Sincerely, Irene
