The in-between

A blog of procrastination about being between stories, journals and things that should probably be fed to the fire… Between stories is a new experience for me. I realised I was in this space as a space only last night. I was sort of fidgeting around my laptop opening and closing apps and tabs likeContinue reading “The in-between”

Acts of kindness

Practicing consideration and generosity of spirit is more than just making cooing noises, says Tanya MeesonWoman&Home, July 2022 You’ve probably come across a little sign somewhere quietly imploring you to ‘just be kind’. If you’re on social media you probably see at least one of these posts a week, either as a picture or simpleContinue reading “Acts of kindness”

Unveiling the holy

There’s always been more to beauty than meets the eye, says Tanya MeesonWoman&Home, June 2022 There’s an image of a woman I keep in the ‘pictures’ file on my laptop, a screengrab from an old Humans of New York Instagram post.

Into the woods…

Hey there. I’m Tanya, author of The Fulcrum and columnist for Woman&Home SA. You’ll find my latest columns, blogs and waffles here. Want to get in touch? Contact me here.


The Fulcrum is for readers who like some magic with their real life, some supernatural with their Sci-Fi, some retelling with some myth mixing. It’s for readers who like character-driven, plot-based fiction where genres are bent and blended, and protagonists are caught in a story not of their choosing.

In Chicago, part-time bookkeeper and burlesque dancer Camille discovers she’s pregnant with a child she doesn’t want. In Baltimore, brilliant virologist Jacob is being courted by a rich and deeply sinister patron. And in Verona, grumpy Father Antonio is beginning a great, secret journey. Again.

The history of humanity is a dance between life and death, creation and destruction. When the scales seem set towards annihilation, a balancer is born, bringing equilibrium and correcting the course.

The balancer is not born alone in the world. Since the beginning of humanity, each has been shepherded into the world by The Fulcrum. And now this ancient team – part human, part immortal – must look to the newest balancer: Camille’s unborn baby.

But this time, all is not as it seems. As the harsh Chicago winter sets in, the players in this aeons-old game will be forced to make choices they don’t want to fulfill their destinies in ways they never imagined possible…
