Meredith Morgenstern

About me

Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Meredith has been writing pretty much her whole life. She probably made up stories in the womb, too. Early on it was clear her writing would take a darker twist when she wrote, for her first grade picnic story, about the ants.

In 1996 Meredith moved to New York with no job, no college degree, no work experience, no real skills, one friend in the city, a room in the back of someone else’s apartment in Harlem, and a handful of Bat Mitzvah money to get started. Somehow she managed to pull herself together enough to get a job, graduate from NYU in 1999, and get some friends. One of those was a classmate from NYU who was half-Japanese and half-Swiss, and very into all the same dark, disturbing and twisty books and movies Meredith was into. This friendship inspired The Prophesies Trilogy.

When not chasing kids out from underfoot or writing, Meredith enjoys fine wine, yoga, meditation, reading, and watching sci fi/fantasy on TV and in the movies.

Spoiler-Free Book Review: "A Conservation of Shadows" by Yoon Ha Lee

I'm bad at math, and I don't mean that in a girlie-girl, giggly, "Tee hee, math is so hard!" hair-twirling kind of way. What I mean is, I think I have some sort of undiagnosed math learning disability. I struggled through pre-algebra, twice. In my junior year of high school…
