Meagan Spooner grew up reading and writing every spare moment of the day, while dreaming about life as an archaeologist, a marine biologist, an astronaut. She graduated from Hamilton College in New York with a degree in playwriting, and has spent several years since then living in Australia. She's travelled with her family all over the world to places like Egypt, South Africa, the Arctic, Greece, Antarctica, and the Galapagos, and there’s a bit of every trip in every story she writes.She currently lives and writes in Asheville, North Carolina, but the siren call of travel is hard to resist, and there’s no telling how long she'll stay there. In her spare time she plays guitar, plays video games, plays with her cat, and reads.

Author's Comment: I have a particular pair of pants that I wear when I'm writing. Yeah, I'm serious. They're my writing pants. They change, obviously, through the years – they are usually evolved from pajama pants or sweat pants, chosen for comfort more than anything, but they have to be that awesome state of totally worn in and soft, right before they fall apart. I always mourn the loss of a pair of writing pants when they finally do just fall apart in the wash. Or get eaten by a dog, on one memorable (and TRAGIC) occasion. (Hint: it was Amie's dog.)
