Meredith is the author of four published young adult books. She grew up in Concord, New Hampshire where she fell in love with her two passions–writing and traveling. Meredith earned her master’s degree in social work from the University of New Hampshire and worked as a social worker for several years before deciding to pursue her true dream of telling stories. She has lived in Boston, London, Zurich, and Houston, and currently lives in St. Louis with her husband and her spoiled rescue dog. When Meredith’s not writing, she loves photography, playing the piano, trying new recipes, and chasing her goal of seeing every continent (four down, three to go!).
