About the Author

I mainline coffee and chocolate, worry about the width of my hips and peruse too many cooking magazines. I suspect I wouldn't fret about one if I didn't indulge in the other. I'm obsessive about quality, so much so, I keep going back to tweak my earlier books, hoping to make them better.

"Why are your characters flawed?" one reviewer asked.
"Because people are," I replied. Although I'm very protective of them, hoping beyond measure that they'll find acceptance. Not ridicule.

As a true 'GRITS' (girl raised in the south) people expect me to have bat-shit crazy relatives. The question here isn't IF, but rather, which side of the family are they on? Needless to say they offer a pool of inspiration into which I liberally dip.
My characters are a bit OCD. Not in the vein of obsessive-compulsive, that would be too a la carte, mine are 'occasionally crazy or damaged.' And I think you'll enjoy them. As someone who understands wrestling with complex issues, it's easy to share their stories. I myself grew up with an ill mum, so I began creating imaginary friends at a young age to keep me company.
In addition to writing and cooking, I'm an avid mountain climber who keeps up with an assortment of pets. As a life-long globe trotter, I can tell you that I like nothing better than a good story and a road trip. I hope you enjoy this one.
Please let me know what works and what doesn't. I'm always interested in hearing feedback, reviews, comments, and questions are most welcome. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration. Happy reading.

Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite Luminary by P.S. Meraux is Volume 1 of the Luminary Saga. There is no written rule that says you can only have one soulmate in your lifetime. And there is nothing that says you get to choose your soulmate either. A student from Georgia has lost her soulmate; even worse, her backup soulmate has gone as well and she never got to meet either of them. This puts her life on an unexpected course and the Paragons, a race of supernatural beings, must step in and help. They must retrofit a soul to match with Emily and this won’t be pleasant. Unfortunately, it is the only way to make sure that soulmates match perfectly otherwise humanity cannot advance. Things are going wrong in the world of Paragon though; Emily isn’t the only one to lose her first and second soulmates so quickly and the Paragons now have a tough job on their hands to get everyone matched up again or face the failure of the human race. Luminary (Luminary Saga) Volume 1 by P.S. Meraux is an interesting book with an original and thrilling plot. The detail in this story is superb and written in such a descriptive way that you can’t help but picture the story in your mind as you read it. The plot is original and that is great to see because so many books in a genre follow the same basic outline – it made a nice change to read something totally different. This is a light-hearted story, with humor scattered throughout, blended with fantasy and the supernatural, resulting in a great read that keeps you hooked from the first to the last pages. The characters were very well-developed, obviously in preparation for the next in the series. I can’t wait to read book two.

Luminary by P.S. Meraux was such a great read and unlike anything that I have read before previously. Emily had two soul mates, but they both died before she could ever meet them. The idea of this itself fascinated me and made me eager to read the book. I liked the plot of the book and the interest in finding a soul mate. The book is well written and it is easy to connect to the main character Emily. I was always a fan of the Twilight series and this book reminds me a lot of that. There's a perfect mix of romance and action that will surely please all readers. Even if you aren't into this type of genre, I would say that this book really has something for everyone!

Good read I downloaded this for my daughter, it's an interesting look a at the age old question of soul mates. I really like the way souls are depicted, I haven't read that anywhere before, it's very original. Unexpected ending, which I enjoyed.

This book is a little offbeat but has an interesting take on soul mates. The ending was unexpected and I love that.
