About the Author

Meredith Lee owes her half-East Coast, half-southern soul to Texas-based writers Dixie Lee Evatt and Sue Meredith Cleveland. They are often asked how they write as a team, so they answered the question in their article, COMPUTER KEYS FOR FOUR HANDS: TEAMING UP TO WRITE. Find it in the June newsletter of the Heart of Texas Chapter of Sisters in Crime. https://sinc-heartoftexas.com

DIXIE LEE EVATT, Writer and Word-Wrangler

A former political writer for the Austin American-Statesman, Dixie later taught writing at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communication at Syracuse University. While there she published a book, along with colleagues, on the communication practices of small organizations, Thinking Big. Staying Small. When she teamed up with Sue Cleveland to write fiction, they sold a screenplay treatment to a Hollywood producer. Although the movie was never made, they used the seed money to found ThirtyNineStars, their publishing company. They also produced a second screenplay based on the life of a Waco schoolteacher who was imprisoned in World War I because of his German heritage and his work with early radio broadcasting. That screenplay, Wireless, was a finalist for the Chesterfield Writer's Film Project in 2003.

SUE MEREDITH CLEVELAND, Author and Artist

Sue is an award-winning artist who has worked in multiple media including oil, watercolor, and fiber. Her earliest publications include articles advocating childbirth education and humanizing hospital care. Shrouded, a mystery Sue collaborated on with Dixie Evatt, was a finalist in the 2017 Writers' League of Texas Manuscript Contest. One Slip Over the Line, Sue's work-in-progress Young Adult novel, was a 2015 finalist in the Cynthia Leitich Smith Writing Mentor Award. Sue's essays, literary memoir pieces, and short stories have been featured in award-winning literary journals, magazines, and blogs. Wireless, a screenplay she collaborated on with Dixie Evatt, was a semi-finalist for the 2003 Chesterfield Writer's Film Project. Sue has written two pre-published Middle Grade novels: A Shadow Over Silver and Blue Water Over Dark Secrets.
