Meryl Yourish has been writing since the ninth grade, when she wrote her first short story about alienation after moving to a new town and attending a new school. The story made it into the Parents Night magazine, and her writing career was born.
She spent most of her life in northeastern New Jersey. She moved to Richmond, VA in 2002, where she lives with two cats that look suspiciously like Goldeneyes and Letsan.
