B.A. Mealer retired and began traveling using her Harley Davidson trike, pulling a trailer and tent camping, with the goal of seeing all 49 continental states. Along the way, she continued to write while verifying settings for her books, met people who gave her more ideas, and found a place where she felt like she belonged, giving her the impetus to move from south Florida where she spent the last 30 plus years.
The move the northern Arizona to a place almost off the grid allows her the peace and quiet to write while continuing to travel to find more settings and people to use in her novels. Ms. Mealer is a voracious reader, and warns her readers that she writes like she reads, a little bit of everything from fantasy to sci-fi and realistic to off the wall contemporary fiction. All her books will contain romance and most will have suspense. The picture was taken by Henry Greer, a professional photographer she met while traveling in New Hampshire.
