Minnette Meador has been writing since she first penned a Star Trek episode for her classmates at age 8. Inspired by a very schizophrenic muse, she has published books in epic fantasy, historical romance, children's books, personal essays, and is currently working on a paranormal romantic comedy. Minnette says of herself: I'm somewhere between thirty and hair, blue eyes...six kids, one slightly used husband, and any number of pets from time to time... wanttabe hippy...wanttheirmoney yuppie... pro musician and actress for 20 years...native Oregonian... lover of music, beauty, and all things green. Willing slave to the venerable muse.

Minnette currently resides in Woodburn, Oregon with her husband, having replaced the children with one dog. She says, Pierre the dog pretty much runs the show.

The Edge of Honor, historical romances, (Resplendence),

Will Joshan use the power to rescue his world or will a new tyrant sit upon Sirdar’s throne? Second volume in the Starsight Series.


“[Starsight] is one powerful and imaginative fantasy adventure novel with many nice touches...there is magic galore, and challenge galore; nothing comes easy. It's the first of a series, and it should do well...”
Piers Anthony

“Minnette Meador has begun reinventing and redefining the field by page 30 of STARSIGHT, and hasn’t stopped by the final sentence. But there’s more than just novel ideas going on, here; Meador also knows the unfakeable secret of keeping even newcomers turning the pages: care about your characters so much it becomes infectious. This is a Typhoid Mary of a book, from a writer to watch." Spider Robinson, co-author with Robert A. Heinlein of VARIABLE STAR


a historical romance by Minnette Meador
Sequel to The Centurion & The Queen

The Boudicca revolt has been squelched, the tribes of the Iceni and the Trinovantes have been exterminated by the Roman Governor of Britannia, Suetonius. He has sworn his revenge on the remaining tribes for the Celtic insolence. Marius and Delia are now King and Queen of a broken Celtic tribe, and Marius has to use all his skill and cunning to help his hunted people as they flee before General Suetonius' sword. Reluctantly donning the mask of the liberatio mysticus, the “phantom” that hides the scattered tribes, the couple recruits Marius' ex-Roman century and what few Celtic warriors that remain to face the deadly Roman machine. They struggle to keep their people together and prevent the rest of a nation from fading into history. But they are threatened by secret plots, jealousy, and a new enemy that hammers a wedge between them, a wedge that even an unborn child may not be able to dislodge when Marius falls under the charms of Delia's sworn enemy. Sacrifices will have to be made to save their people, to keep the nation together, to survive the Roman rage. In the end, it may be more than their love or their lives they lose.

Minnette Meador adeptly weaves in Roman and Celtic words and references, adding realism to this harsh world. Fans of The Centurion and the Queen will not be disappointed.
