A scientist in a past life, these days Meredith Shayne mainly uses her scientific training to poke holes in television pseudoscience. Originally from Australia, she moved to New Zealand to start a new life a few years ago and hasn’t regretted it for one minute, even if she frequently wishes that the New Zealand weather was a little better; if she’s forced, she’ll admit that the refreshing lack of animals that can kill you in New Zealand makes up for a little rain. Meredith travels a lot, so much so that she has developed a shameful love of airplane food and knows her passport number off by heart. When she is at home she enjoys baking, horrible music from the 1980s, reality television, and gloating any time Australia thrashes the living daylights out of New Zealand on the sporting field.

Meredith is an author of m/m fiction, published by Torquere Press and Dreamspinner Press. You can find a list of Meredith’s books here, and a list of free fiction here.

  1. Meredith,

    I’m not one to usually leave comments for authors but I just had to share that I really loved your book Equilibrium. I downloaded it on a whim from Amazon onto my Kindle late in an afternoon and once I started reading it I just couldn’t put it down. I had the story read within a day and a half. I simply just fell in love with the characters. The interaction and dynamics between Michael and Ryan just felt real to me. After I finished reading the book I missed the characters so much that I went back and re-read the story again several days later.

    Also, I was thinking that this would be a great story to have turned into a movie, a gay independent film. Perhaps a mini-series and develop more back stories for the two main characters.

    Anyways, I’m looking forward to reading the next installment coming out in December.

    Best Regards,

    • Hi Joel,

      Thanks so much for your comment, it really made my day. Michael and Ryan are quite dear to my heart, so it really means a lot to me when people say they love them too. A miniseries would be fab, I must say, I would love that. 🙂 I think these two still have quite a lot to say about their lives, so hopefully some of that will see the light of day eventually.

      Best wishes,

  2. Hi Meredith 🙂

    I just finished Equilibrium and have to say I LOVED it!!!!

    Coming from Cronulla & having lived in Newtown/Erskineville and experienced Oxford St, I’m now living in a small country town in Far North Queensland. I love my M/M escapes and to find you writing in my world so to speak was a real revelation.

    I have now purchased your other books & will dive in head first, unless I run into “Ryan” at the pub later (Royal Hotel, Herberton) you never know LOL



    • Hi Mark,

      Thanks so much for letting me know, I’m glad you liked it. You’ll know, since you bought my other books, that I write about Australia a lot, so I’m always happy to hear from someone who appreciates that, especially a fellow Aussie. 🙂 I hope you enjoy my others as much as Equilibrium. If you find Ryan at the pub say hello to him for me haha.


      • Hi Meredith 🙂

        I just finished ‘Whitewater’ and have to say that you blew me away even more than you did with ‘Equilibrium’. The characters are spot on 110% I read it in one sitting LOL and wanted more!!!

        Ryan wasn’t at the Pub, but the Blues won game one “YAY”. Now I have you on my watch list I can’t wait for you to publish more.

        Best wishes always


        P.S. Do you know where I can get a copy of ‘Rust Red: Galvanized’ it’s the only book I can’t locate anywhere?

      • Hey Mark,

        I’m so pleased to hear you liked Whitewater, that one’s pretty close to my heart.

        One down, two to go with the Origin, hey? Haha. Since I’m NSW through and through I can’t say I’m not pleased they won, even if I don’t follow it!

        Rust Red: Galvanized is out of print, and I haven’t gotten around to re-publishing it myself yet. Would you mind emailing me, and I’ll see if I can sort you out with something – meredith.shayne[at] 🙂


  3. Hi Meredith,

    I just wanted to say that I’m completely in love with “Whitewater”. I liked your other stories a lot too, your writing style just fits me I guess, but “Whitewater” is my absolute favourite. It makes me ridiculously happy every time I read it. Thank you for that!
