Marilyn Meredith
Marilyn Meredith has been a professional writer for thirty plus years. She’s written for local newspapers and national magazines.

She is one of the founders of the San Joaquin chapter of Sisters in Crime.

She’s had two historical family sagas published based on her own family genealogy. A new edition of TWO WAYS WEST is available.

Her mysteries include the Deputy Crabtree series, DEADLY TRAIL, (an Eppie nominee), DEADLY OMEN, UNEQUALLY YOKED, a INTERVENTION (a Bloody Dagger award nominee), and WINGBEAT. She has borrowed liberally from the Southern Sierra foothills where she lives for the setting of the Tempe Crabtree books. Her Rocky Bluff series is located in a fictional coastal community; FINAL RESPECTS and BAD TIDINGS. GUILT BY ASSOCIATION is a stand-alone situated in an old gold-country village on Highway 49 and won the publisher’s best mystery/suspense award. THE ASTRAL GIFT is a mystery with a touch of the supernatural.

Some of the above books are also published electronically. She writes in other genres as well such as Christian horror and ghost stories.

An instructor for Writer’s Digest school, she is one of the judges for the Writer’s Digest contest for Genre Fiction Category for Self-Published Books.

Marilyn is a member of Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, EPIC, serves on the board of the Police Writers’ Association, and has been a featured speaker and been on panels at mystery conferences, libraries and writers’ groups all over the country. She also speaks for schools, service and social organizations locally and in other parts of California.

However, what she is most proud of, is the fact she’s been married nearly 54 years to the sailor she met on a blind date (they said it would never last), and her eighteen grand kids and ten greats.
