About this author

Fiona writes best selling historical adventure-romance alongside the heroic-romantic, often brutal, fantasy she built her career upon. She lives in Australia but frequently roams the world meticulously researching the locations and gathering material for her historical novels that have international settings. Her books are published worldwide and in various languages.
Her most recent historical fiction has gathered such a following that she is now hosting a tour in 2014 to Paris and Provence so eager readers can walk in the footsteps of her characters.

Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.

This recipe is from a Lantern recipe book from Penguin simply called Matt Moran. I bake this pie/tart regularly because it is constantly requested by the family and works as a treat or an elegant dinner party dessert. Can be served warmed or room temperature. And much of it can be done well in advance. Perfect!

Fiona McIntosh, Emissary
