Biographical and Professional Information

Meg Waite grew up in Wheeling, Palatine and Northbrook, Illinois and now lives in Palo Alto, California. She didn't start out being a novelist, but rather as someone who went off to the University of Michigan thinking she would become a doctor, but emerged after seven years as a corporate lawyer in a tidy blue suit, and it was years later - and only at her husband's gentle reminder that she got up the nerve to give writing a serious try. Her work has now been heard on public radio and been translated into many languages.
