Meredith Wild, bestselling author of the Hacker series, is our IndieReader Author Spotlight for October. Throughout the month Meredith, who lives in New Hampshire, will be mapping places from her romance novels around the Boston area.
Meredith is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author and has run several internet businesses over the years. In fact, it’s her role as a woman in the male-dominated technology industry that inspires her writing. She relishes being able to “tackle the topic of power play in and out of the bedroom between two intelligent and strong-willed characters.” Continuing, she says, “More than anything, I was really focused on writing a female lead who could experience a degree of surrender in a sexual relationship without giving up control over her life.”
Setting plays a big part in defining that power struggle between the two characters, putting them in places that define and break down traditional gender roles. Hear more about the role of place in Meredith’s writing on the Placing Literature podcast with host Tim Knox.
