Meredith Mansfield


Professionally, I've been a financial analyst and a visual basic programmer. I also have a paralegal certificate, although I've never worked in that field. It's anybody's guess what I'll be when I grow up.

Imagining stories and writing have always been an important part of my life. It's one I've finally gotten to spend a significant amount of time on while I care for my mother who has Alzheimer's disease.

Smashwords book reviews by Meredith Mansfield

  • Superheat on Jan. 14, 2013

    This story artfully includes some of the major events of the time (1969 and 1970), while building up to a suspenseful climax of corporate greed gone awry and one honest man's attempt to see justice done. The ending will keep you turning the pages to find out what happens next.
