Meryl YourishMeryl Yourish is the author of The Catmage Chronicles, a YA fantasy series about cats with human intelligence and magical powers. She attended the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers’ Workshop at Michigan State University, which led to her first fiction sale.

She spent most of her life in northeastern New Jersey. Meryl moved to Richmond, VA in 2002, where she writes novels and lives with two cats, one of whom looks suspiciously like the orange Maine Coon in The Catmage Chronicles.

Meryl is currently working on a YA dystopian SF series, because the world simply doesn’t have enough of those yet.
