B. A. Mealer:  Author and Traveler

Me and my bike.

B. A. Mealer, author, currently writes suspense novels with strong, yet vulnerable females as her heroines. She grew up reading The Hardy Boys, Judy Barton and Nancy Drew novels before graduating to Agatha Christie, James Patterson, Dan Brown, J.D. Robb and James Michener. To this day, she is fascinated by the dragon stories she had read and wants to write a book with a dragon as one of the main characters. She will read any book, no matter what the genre if it is well written. (Yes, she loved the Harry Potter series and is awaiting the next Deviant/Belador book, but also likes the sappy romances.)

Being a romantic at heart, all her books involve some romance, but it’s usually secondary to the rest of the story. Most of her books are contemporary, but expect the unexpected because she writes like she reads, in all genres including fantasy and sci-fi. Expect her novels to take place all over the USA since Ms. Mealer loves to travel and uses places she has been as settings.

Along with writing, riding her motorcycle is a passion. She traveled for a year after retiring from being a nurse, using her Harley Davidson trike and a 10 x 10 tent. The intention was to visit all the places she had read about and some she hadn’t. (I forgot to mention she is directionally challenged). While traveling, she fell in love with the high desert and moved to Northern Arizona where she now enjoys the solitude of living on the edge of the grid where wildlife abounds, there is a change of seasons and people are few. It allows her mind wander into murder, mayhem and the unusual without distraction.
