Meredith is a USA Today Bestselling Author. She is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area, where she was raised by a Swiss father and an American mother. She is a graduate of the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Her own engagement ring, which is an heirloom from 1903, inspired her to write her debut novel The Dressmaker’s Dowry. She wrote it on weekends while working for a San Francisco startup.
Meredith finds the immigrant experience a rich part of the fabric of American history. Her second novel Boardwalk Summer has been called “a compelling story that channels both the glamour and big dreams of old Hollywood with the charm and thrills of Santa Cruz’s boardwalk.” (Elise Hooper, author of The Other Alcott). Meredith lives outside San Francisco with her husband, their feisty toddler and spoiled English bulldog, where she now writes full time.
