Ready, set, slow

Pleasure is the new fitness, right? Tanya Meeson hopes soWoman&Home, November 2022 Although I’m a fan of New Year’s Lists, one thing you’ll never find on mine is ‘get fitter’. That’s because I know my limitations and, if life has taught me anything, it’s that I don’t have the strength of mind necessary to commitContinue reading “Ready, set, slow”

Into the dream

I was invited to talk to a book club in Greyton this week, held at the wonderful Maånskyñ on Oak Street. As I’d be speaking to bookish people, it seemed like the appropriate time to explore the co-created space between writers and readers. I thought I’d share the talk here. The question writers often getContinue reading “Into the dream”

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. Read more…

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…
