Meradeth Houston lives in Montana where she’s an anthropology professor and scientist. If you let her, she’ll tell you more than you ever wanted to know about getting DNA out of dead stuff. She enjoys escaping the snow by imagining herself back in her favorite places in her home state of California, with a little drama or supernatural flare added in. She’s a proud dog mom and represented by Cristi Marchetti.

I've waited really impatiently to share this and am SO excited to have it go live this morning :) What do you think? I know Someone Else's Soul doesn't release for a good while, but this is a super fun teaser!
