Sondra Sykes Meek is originally from Florida, but has lived in several locations in the United States and abroad. She is a wife and mother of two, a retired Marine Corps master sergeant, and a Project Manager in the Defense Industry. She has a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, and has several stories in various stages of progress. She hopes to write full-time one day, but for now, she writes in the spare, quiet moments of her life.

Sondra wrote and published Model Marine to reveal the courage and sacrifices of Marines and their families. She wanted to offer people another kind of hero: someone who is not supernatural, immortal, or from the future.

I also used essential oils and waterfalls to relax my mind. When I needed a creative spark, I would turn to books about writing; my favorite of them is The 3 A.M. Epiphany. (less)

However, no matter how well you write, ensure your book is edited prior to publication! As a reader, it is extremely frustrating to read a book with a great plot and poorly written prose. I consider myself a strong writer and still purchased two rounds of professional editing services for Model Marine. I have received reviews that commented on how well written my book is. Even so, I will likely opt for three rounds of edits on my next book. The cost of professional editing is worth the results!(less)

"Empathic and well-paced. Vivid language. Impactive scenes and storytelling. Realistic dialogue. Emotive all the way through. This is a memorable book, and if adapted, would make a thrilling movie or TV series."

"Semper Fi!

Great story wonderfully told. The author did a wonderful job describing the Marine way of life and combining the civilian side as well. "
Model Marine by Sondra Sykes Meek
"I was hesitant about reading this book at first because I am not military and have no military ties, so I didn't think I could relate. The author proved me wrong! Such an amazing story about how certain events in life can change our decisions, our..." Read more of this review »
