D. R. Meredith
D. R. Meredith is the author of 18 novels, mysteries and historical novels, a TV novelization, and numerous short stories.
A fan of mysteries since a childhood obsession with Agatha Christie and Rex Stout, Ms. Meredith has written three mystery series set in the Texas Panhandle, a little-known area of the state—even to other Texans.
Two titles, Murder by Impulse and Murder by Deception in the John Lloyd Branson series, were finalists for the Anthony Award. An equal obsession with the American West inspired her to write two historical sagas, A Time Too Late and The Reckoning, which she describes as “two hanky books for readers who want their hearts tugged while satisfying their curiosity about the Old West.”
The book review editor for Roundup magazine for more than 20 years, Ms. Meredith owns a private library of more than 5,000 books on the American West. She is a member of Western Writers of America, Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and American Crime Writers League. She has spoken at national writers conferences, several universities, libraries, and writers’ workshops and tries not to make a habit of speaking for free.
