horizontal blog tour bannerMeradeth’s never been a big fan of talking about herself, but if you really want to know, here are some random tidbits about her:

She’s a Northern California girl, but now lives and teaches anthropology in Montana. When she’s not writing, she’s sequencing dead people’s DNA. For fun! She’s been writing since she was 11 years old. It’s her hobby, her passion, and she’s so happy to get to share her work!

If she could have a super-power, it would totally be flying. Which is a little strange, because she’s terrified of heights.


About the Book:

“They are everywhere, can be anyone, and are always the last person you’d expect.” When Tom stumbles across his grandfather’s journal, he’s convinced the old man was crazier than he thought. The book contains references to beings called the Sary, immortals who are assigned to save humans on the verge of suicide. They certainly aren’t allowed to fall in love with mortals. Which the journal claims Tom’s grandfather did, resulting in his expulsion from the Sary. As strange as the journal seems, Tom can’t get the stories out of his head; especially when he finds the photo of his grandfather’s wings.

Tom’s only distraction is Ari, the girl he studies with for their chemistry class.

Ari has one goal when she arrives in town: see how much Tom knows about the Sary and neutralize the situation. This isn’t a normal job, but protecting the secrecy of the Sary is vital. If Tom is a threat to exposing the Sary to the public, fate has a way of taking care of the situation, usually ending with the mortal’s death. While Ari spends time with Tom, he becomes more than just an assignment, but how far can a relationship go when she can’t tell him who she really is? When she finds out just how much Tom actually knows about the Sary, Ari is forced to choose between her wings, and her heart.

THE CHEMISTRY OF FATE is a companion to COLORS LIKE MEMORIES and is set before the latter takes place. It is geared toward an upper YA, or New Adult audience.

Barnes and Noble:



Q: Tell us why readers should buy THE CHEMISTRY OF FATE.

A: I think you should pickup a copy of Chemistry if you happen to enjoy a star-crossed love, a little flying, magic, and thinking about the secrets we all keep. Especially if you happen to like secrets that can be deadly!

Q: What makes a good paranormal romance?

A: For me, the characters come first. Can you identify with them, and do you root for them? Of course, a story that catches hold of you and doesn’t let go is just as important!

Q: What is a regular writing day like for you?

A: I honestly would love to know! I don’t have too many regular writing days, I’ll admit. Most of the time, I’m trying to eek in a few hours here and there, often in the evenings after a full day of teaching at the university.

Q: What do you find most rewarding about being an author?

A: When someone reads my stories. Mostly when they enjoy them and have a good time getting lost in my world, but I’m pretty happy with just reading them, too!

Q: What’s the best writing advice you’ve ever received that you’d like to pass to other authors?

A: The best advice would have to be that you can’t please everyone. Make as many people happy as you can, but don’t sweat it if that’s not everyone—because it never will be! I tell myself this all the time when reading reviews (though I’ll be honest that it doesn’t always work!)
