Murder in the Worst Degree
I like Murder in the Worst Degree because the author F.M. Meredith of the mystery deals
realistically with true life crises or opportunities (depending on your
perspective) of her three-dimensional, lifelike characters. These include special needs children, Alzheimer’s Disease,
end-of-life decisions, and balancing careers and marriage. F.M. (Marilyn) Meredith is also a joy to talk to,so please welcome her.
From novelist F.M. Meredith
asked me about how I came about the title forMurder in the Worst Degree. In yesterday’s post on my blog tour I explained
how I came about all my titles, including this one. I’ll go into a little more
detail about it came about.
the first time I had a title before I even had an inkling what I was going to
write about. A friend from Nipomo, one I only see once a year when I go to the
Nipomo Library to participate in a craft fair, told me on Facebook, “Why don’t
you write a book with the title, Murder in the Worst Degree?”
thought, why not? I began the book and the more I got into it the more I knew
the title didn’t fit the plot that was coming together. That is until nearly
the end, then it came to me. When you read the book, you’ll see how the title
fits the story.
the latest RBPD mystery, Murder in the Worst Degree: The body
that washes up on the beach leads Detectives Milligan and Zachary on a murder
investigation that includes the victim’s family members, his housekeeper, three
long-time friends, and a mystery woman.
M. Meredith aka Marilyn Meredith is the author of over 35 published books. She
enjoys writing about police officers and their families and how what happens on
the job affects the family and vice versa. Having several members of her own
family involved in law enforcement, as well as many friends, she’s witnessed
some of this first-hand.
