Tom’s only distraction is Ari, the girl he studies with for their chemistry class.
Ari has one goal when she arrives in town: see how much Tom knows about the Sary and neutralize the situation. This isn’t a normal job, but protecting the secrecy of the Sary is vital. If Tom is a threat to exposing the Sary to the public, fate has a way of taking care of the situation, usually ending with the mortal’s death. While Ari spends time with Tom, he becomes more than just an assignment, but how far can a relationship go when she can’t tell him who she really is? When she finds out just how much Tom actually knows about the Sary, Ari is forced to choose between her wings, and her heart.
THE CHEMISTRY OF FATE is a companion to COLORS LIKE MEMORIES and is set before the latter takes place. It is geared toward an upper YA, or New Adult audience. During the tour, CHEMISTRY will be only $2.99 in ebook format.
Dream Cast for The Chemistry of Fate
Thanks so much for hosting me! I thought it might be kind of fun to show off a bit of what the characters from The Chemistry of Fate look like—or, what my dream cast would look like (should, you know, a more “southerly” place freeze over and someone took interest in the movie rights).
There’s just one small problem: while I was writing this post, I came to realize how ridiculously bad I am at choosing actors. This may have something to do with my addiction to Netflix and choice to watch re-runs of the X-Files over current TV, and also my total inability to ever remember actor’s names. The roles they played? No problem. What their names are in real life? Ummmm. Yeah.
So, after soliciting the help of some amazing friends, I have a few actors to share, but I’d LOVE to hear if you have any better ideas!
The Chemistry of Fate is told from the dual points of view of Tom and Ari (short for Arianne):
Steven McQueen who plays Jeremy Gilbert in Vampire Diaries. Tom’s a pretty studious college freshman, good looking, but not in an over-the-top kind of way. His charm is his better asset—if you can get him away from his books.
There are two other players in the story that I thought I’d pick faces for too:
Gabriel Mann as Oliver. Oliver is Tom’s boss, and the slightly eccentric lab manager who has become Tom’s good friend. Known for singing (and occasionally dancing) to pop songs, and a few other random quirks, Oliver was a crazy character to write. He’s also the only character I’ve ever written that’s based on a real-life person I know, which is a story in and of itself!
Lyndsy Fonseca as Ari’s roommate and friend, Amanda. I’ve always imagined Amanda with a little more reddish hair, but otherwise she’s a college freshman with a big heart and a great closet.

About Meradeth: Meradeth’s never been a big fan of talking about herself, but if you really want to know, here are some random tidbits about her:
* She’s a Northern California girl, but now lives and teaches anthropology in Montana.
* When she’s not writing, she’s sequencing dead people’s DNA. For fun!
* She’s been writing since she was 11 years old. It's her hobby, her passion, and she’s so happy to get to share her work!
* If she could have a super-power, it would totally be flying. Which is a little strange, because she’s terrified of heights.
