My favorite picture books involve great word play, a sense of irreverence, lots of silliness, and buckets of heart. I also love titles that give a wink & a nod to the tireless parents reading for the hundredth time. (Or is it in the thousands, now?)

Hello and welcome!

I'm Meghan and I mostly write picture books, but also work in illustration and young adult fiction.

I don't have a favorite color--my favorite is what happens between colors. In short, I love rainbows!
