When Meredith Davison receives a routine assignment to investigate the theft of four valuable paintings, she soon finds her life taking twists and turns she never bargained for—from murder to being enmeshed with drug smugglers is only the beginning. Not content to let professional law enforcement officers take charge, she uses her job as a subterfuge to finding the truth. But when a hired killer has her in his crosshairs, she realizes more is at stake than solving a mystery.

About The Author
While married and raising three sons, I developed a career in insurance claims management and administration that lasted for over 25 years. However, during this hectic time, I never gave up my ambition to be a professional writer. This desire was partially met after preparing training manuals for my claims staff and writing articles for insurance trade journals. I have given many speeches and training workshops to workers' compensation insurance and risk management personnel at industry conventions and conferences. However, my true aspiration was to write fiction.
In 1996, I took early retirement from my career as Corporate Manager of Weyerhaeuser Company's workers' compensation program to become a self-employed consultant. The following year I married Donald Lindstedt and joined him in retirement in Cannon Beach, Oregon. I became active in volunteer work that included designing and editing a cookbook, Cooking on the Coast, as a fundraiser for the Cannon Beach Historical Society. I have also been involved in preparing newsletters for two local non-profit organizations
In 2001, I gave myself permission to leave my consulting career and volunteer work behind to pursue my dream of becoming a professional writer. I have published two poems, placed third in Willamette Writer's 2003 Conference for my poem, Ladies of Chedigny, and was a finalist with my short story, Simply to Fly, in the 2004 Northwest Writer's Conference. My first novel, Deception Cove, will be released by Wings e-Press, Inc. in October, 2010.
In 2003, I made a decision to return to college to hone my writing craft. In 2006, at the age of 70, I graduated from Marylhurst University, near Lake Oswego, Oregon, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature and Writing. While a student, I read my paper, "Mrs. Dalloway's Party Consciousness," at the 2005 Virginia Woolf Conference at Lewis and Clark University in Portland, Oregon. In March 2007, I delivered my essay, Shakespeare - Perchance a Woman, at the Shakespeare Authorship Studies Conference at Concordia University in Portland, Oregon.
In addition to my three sons, I have nine grand-children, two great-grandsons; three step-children, five step-grandchildren and three step great-grandchildren. Even though this brood loves to visit us at the beach; fortunately, they don't all come at the same time.
