Tail of the Taniwha is Meredith's first book of short stories and follows her much lauded 2012 collection of poems Brown Girls in Bright Red Lipstick (Beatnik Publishing) and multi-award-winning 2010 play Rushing Dolls (Playmarket, 2012).
"Fabulously sassy, Meredith turns her poetic lens to short fiction, capturing her journey from urbanesia to metropolitan Europe. Tail of the Taniwha is her smashing debut collection." - Robert Sullivan
"This is fine work. There is a lot of energy in the prose and on the strength of the observations and insights along the way we trust the voice." - Lloyd Jones
"... loud, lyrical, and audacious." - Paula Morris
