Meaghan spent her childhood on the rocky North Shore of Massachusetts, and her adolescence in suburban Chicagoland. She graduated from Boston College with a B.A. in English, concentrating in Creative Writing, and then worked for several years as a researcher at National Geographic, a job she loved and for which she went "on assignment" to places such as Kansas City and Budapest.* She was awarded an Anthropology/Creative Writing Fulbright Fellowship to Palermo, Sicily, and moved there to research her first novel. Meaghan has since lived in places as varied as Hong Kong (where she wrote about, among other things, a toilet-themed restaurant) and Arkansas, where she received her M.F.A. in Creative Writing. She now lives in Durham, North Carolina with her husband, dog and two children. To contact Meaghan: add her on Facebook, email her here, or follow @Meagho on Twitter (though she frequently fasts from social media).
*weirdly enough, on both trips she was accompanied by Alex Trebek. This is true.
