Release Date Early October

My new novel – Mortal Insight will be available for purchase in two short months. This is the first novel I have released under my new pen name, E.B. James.    Detective Sergeant Steve Keller has begun to see things. He desperately hopes the visions mean something and not that he’s going crazy. But the visions don’t go away, and when they start meaning something more, Steve finds himself caught in an investigation way bigger than he ever imagined. As the pieces begin to fit together, something dangerous emerges. He can’t hide what he knows, but to expose it doesn’t just stir up controversy, it provokes someone who lurks in the shadows; someone who will kill to keep this information quiet. Mortal Insight, E.B. James new novel, brings you conspiracy,...

Introducing E.B. James

Introducing E.B. James

Well it was bound to happen sooner or later. Earlier this year my first Crime Drama was released. It is so unlike the Meredith Resce period drama romance that my readers have become used to over the last 16 years that I have released it under another name. E.B. James. Yes all three names belong to me in some way or another, so it is still me, but this read is not the usual me at all. The title  is ‘Mortal Insight’. It is a contemporary crime conspiracy drama and I’m excited about it. Detective Sergeant Steve Keller has begun to see things. He desperately hopes the visions mean something and not that he’s going crazy. But the visions don’t go away, and when they start meaning something more, Steve finds himself caught in an investigation way...

Shooting Cover Images

Shooting Cover Images

Over the years as each new title came out, I was also part of the process of cover design.  For the Green Valley series and a number of other titles I actually spoke to young people of my acquaintance who I thought might represent my characters, then organised costume fittings, hairdressers, locations and on occasion babies and animals.  It was actually all a huge amount of fun. Then I got the crazy idea that while I had these young people all dressed up in the fashion of a long gone era, I might get a video camera in action as well, and see if we couldn’t get some moving images for promotion. From there was a reasonably small step to deciding to have a try at filming a promo trailer featuring the characters from the book cover. The Cora Villa trailer was...

The Real Me

The Real Me

When you’re trying to impress a buying public one writes all sorts of formal things to introduce the writer. Here is where you read about the other Meredith Resce. Though I’ve been married now since 1983 and have not lived on the farm in all that time, I am still a farm girl at heart. You know the old saying, ‘you can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl’. That’s me, much to my husband’s chagrin. I was bought up in the farm yard literally, mainly because I much preferred the cow yard, horse yard and shearing shed to the jobs I was likely to be given if I remained indoors. Fashion and I didn’t meet until I was about 17, and then we didn’t get along very well. We still...

Recent Visit to My Cora Villa

Recent Visit to My Cora Villa

After nearly twenty years we have returned to another season living in Victoria. Last time we were stationed in Geelong and this beautiful house was the inspiration behind the story ‘Cora Villa’. Just after Christmas our long time friends from Geelong invited us down from Melbourne for the day. We took a walk along the foreshore – the setting for ‘Cora Villa’ and we made a special stop in front of the house. The following piece is found at the front of the novel, and gives you some insight into how the story came into being: From 1989 to 1994 my family and I lived in the Victorian city of Geelong. This was my first real excursion outside of my own state, and I very much enjoyed the culture of this compact little city. We were working...
