Meet the Author

Meredith Morgan is a pseudonym, my professional and online identity. I write novels for and about strong women and self-publish them as eBooks on Smashwords.I was raised in the Midwest but have roots in the Deep South. I have lived in Florida for the past fifteen years. I tend to alternate the settings for my stories between all three places. From that experience, I've discovered that I love Southern women, Midwestern men and I'm fascinated (in a weird and scary kind of way) by the people I've encountered in Florida, most of whom are from other places.Besides writing, my passions are walking the beach, reading and cooking.

THEIR IMPOSSIBLY LOUSY GRAMMATICAL HEAD!!!!!! It is beyond belief how lousy the editing is on this book. Do they not have spell-check at least?

Author desperately needs to utilize good proofreaders and an experienced editor. Plus a writing class to learn "tight" writing would help. The story, plot, and characters were great; but the errors in spelling, grammar, and dropped words significantly detracted from the flow of the telling of the story.

Enjoyed this one as well. Liked the way she talks about food and her interaction with her daughter. If you want a lot of romance, it isn't there just mild flirtations. Although she is portrayed as a hardass character, it is obivious that she isn't by her interactions with her bosses, coworkers and other characters in the book. Starting my third one "Hell in Texas"

The most annoying thing about this book (for me) is the way it switches from third person to first. The length is great, 523 pages, the editing is better than the others were. Perhaps the author is learning, but I still find her smug style of writing irritating. I down loaded this book, because I found the cover intriging. When I realized what I had, I thought, " oh, heck" well, something close to that anyway. This series is about a woman, insurance arson investigator, and is one of my least favorites. Bev, the heroine is very x chromosone in her behavior and attitude. The author also used pronouns way too often instead of names. I wonder if she forgot who her characters are. I also read too much about Cuba and Cuban imports and who was the best cook, as well as who was eating what. There is cursing, mild sex, violence, arson, etc, but nothing mind blowing or poke your eyes out descriptive. This book is boring on levels. I skipped a lot of pages. Kinda chick lit mystery, but even a romance, which I usually loathe, would be better then this novel. For ages 16 and up, but I doubt a self respecting 16 year old would enjoy this series. AD

I enjoyed the book. Reading about an insurance adjuster is a nice change from murderers. What I did not like were the errors. Errors that should have been caught while proofreading. I wish I had read the books in the order in which they were written. Although each book is independent of each other, it's much easier to follow the characters if you know who they are.

This was a fairly good story although it lagged in places.

This author needs to find focus decide a storyline and stick with it. I gave it a star because without at least one you can't post.

Oh come on now. If I read the words "strong woman" one more time, it will be enough for a lifetime. A theme is supposed to run through a work or series of works, but not dominate every other page. I was expecting better from this author who did a fine job on "After the Fire", but did not find it here.

Kept reading hoping for some kind of twist ending but, nothing. Also, too many racial references had me thinking what "hang ups" author has. Would not recommend.

I kept reading thinking that the story would eventually make sense and that the story lines would come together. I was disappointed because it just stopped.

Quit reading after third chapter. Very poorly written with constant "He said", then next paragraph and sentence after sentence, "She said." Comes across as book written with limited writing skills.
