Meryl Yourish is the author of The Catmage Chronicles. She attended the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers’ Workshop at Michigan State University, which led to her first fiction sale.

After spending most of her life in northeastern New Jersey, she moved to Richmond, VA, where she writes novels while working on quitting her day job. She has two cats, one of whom looks suspiciously like Letsan, the Maine Coon cat in her series.

Meryl is currently working on Beyond the Pale, a Catmage novel set in Ukraine about 100 years before the events of The Catmage Chronicles.
