Born in Houston, Texas, Meb attended fifteen schools throughout the United States by the age of ten. Her nomadic childhood was especially enriched with experiences and memories of the Louisiana region. Being a voracious reader and coupled with a complusion to write, HARBINGER OF EVIL was born.

In addition to being a longtime business owner with her husband, she enjoys tennis, fishing and cruising with their children and grandchildren. The couple reside in Texas with a Yorkshire terrier and unruly chickens, including Teensey, the novel's delinquent rooster.

This story is set in my favorite city, New Orleans. I was surprised to learn of our government's protection of oil even during the 60's. Face-paced thriller. Good read. Good buy.

This book is about a New York detective working in the French Quarter. He tries to solve an unusual murder and gets more than he bargained for. It has a Hitchcock-type ending. I enjoyed this book.

Not only was this an edgy mystery, it contained interesting tidbits of information. I consider the novel an interesting read with a different perspective on the JFK assassination.

Finally something new that doesn't follow the same predictable formula. After reading this book, I WILL ALWAYS turn on the light when I walk into a room.scarier than the Psycho shower scene. Enjoy!

As a whole the book was a good read. I got bogged down in some parts of it. It was rough in the transitions and a bit messy in trying to close it up but had a surprising, twist ending. I could have done without so much of the graphic sexual imagery. The story was fast paced. Not a bad first novel. I look forward to Meb's next.
