Mechanicsburg, PA – Sunbury Press has released author Margaret Meacham’s murder-mystery novel “The Survival of Sarah Landing” about an artist/author from Maryland’s eastern shore who experiences the deaths of her husband and a student close to her.

About the book:
Once upon a time, Sarah Landing, forty-year-old mother of three, was a successful picture book author/artist. But that was before the death of her husband three years earlier. Now she is blocked, and running out of money faster than her growth- spurting fourteen-year-old son can empty the fridge.

Sarah teaches “The Art of the Picture Book” at the local arts center, and when she receives a beautiful manuscript from someone enrolled in her class, she is captivated by the work and eager to help the artist publish. Soon after they meet, the artist disappears, and is later found dead, and Sarah is drawn into the mystery.

While Sarah attempts to understand what happened to Louisa Myner, someone else is attempting to find out how much Sarah knows. Unbeknownst to Sarah and her kids, someone is watching them, and he doesn’t like what he sees.

The story is set on the Eastern Shore of Maryland which is beautiful and isolated and where fishing and boating are part of the culture.

About the author:
Margaret Meacham grew up in Pittsburgh,Pennsylvania and spent her childhood summers visiting her grandmother on the Chesapeake Bay, where many of her books including “Secret of Heron Creek” and “Oyster Moon” take place. In 1975 she received her BA degree in English Literature from Trinity College, and she received an MLS degree from University of Maryland in 1977.

Meacham teaches writing and children’s literature at Goucher College and online through Gotham Writer’s Workshop in New York City. She has three grown children, Pete, Jen and Katy, and currently lives in Brooklandville, Maryland with her husband John and their two dogs Dodger and Sam.
