About the Author
Mereda Cruz was born and raised in the heart of Yorkshire, with a German mother and English father. One of eight children, she grew up around girls which enabled her to develop a good insight into how women think. This experience was sharply contrasted by her career, which exposed her to a male dominated environment where she learned about how men really think.
Mereda was inspired to write Read the Road Signs after a beautiful and successful woman close to her went through a painful separation, losing her job and her home and leaving her so damaged she eventually suffered a breakdown. Feeling compelled to try to help others avoid the same fate, Mereda decided to incorporate everything she has learned in life, from watching her friends cry and putting their lives on hold for relationships which were doomed to failure, seeing people wasting years on unhealthy and destructive relationships, as well as her own experience of the breakdown of a long term relationship and the reactions of others to her status as a single woman.
Her objective “is to change people’s attitudes towards single women and raise awareness of the reasons why we gravitate towards certain relationships so we can break the cycle. One of the reasons women rush into the wrong relationships is because of how they are made to feel when single. The “are you still single” passing comment, as if there is something wrong with them which in turn pushes them into the wrong relationships.
