Meade’s latest book “The Season in Between”

Meade sprinkles her narrative with some tense action scenes—e.g., a threatening, late-night phone call from Al that causes Kate to flee her apartment in terror—that will keep readers on edge…A page-turning story of a woman’s struggle to overcome abuse and make a new path forward.–Kirkus Reviews

Kate Ross know’s it’s time to leave her abusive husband. But she must be careful. She and her daughter must make a safe exit.

Set in the early 1980’s, much of this story takes place in a public middle school with its own elements of drama that get tangled up in school teacher, Kate Ross’s personal life. Soon, Kate learns that escaping from the abusive home is only the first leg of an agonizing journey. Once away from Al, her husband’s campaign of terror can begin.

December 20, 2012 — The New England Book Festival has named Glimpses and The Summer of the Disco King as receiving an Honorable Mentions for 2012.


Thanks to the Maine Authors Publishing and Cooperative of Rockland, Maine, I am very pleased to be finally published and able to offer books that have been developing throughout my lifetime.

Writing is a wonderful gift and privilege. It is also a responsibility. I am striving to entertain as in the “Summer of the Disco King” and to enlighten as in “Glimpses” and “Piper’s Song.” I hope you readers will let me know when I have succeeded in these attempts and conversely, when I have fallen short.
