illustration of “Do you think I am an automaton? — a machine without feelings? and can bear to have my morsel of bread snatched from my lips, and my drop of living water dashed from my cup?

― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

illustration of I have a son who has Sensory Processing Disorder. It’s where the brain doesn’t process the senses correctly, i.e. the vacuum cleaner can sound like walking through a war zone, or salt and pepper on food can taste like jalapeños. It’s so important for us to be aware of our neurologically atypical friends so we can all have more empathy for the struggles they go through.

Profile

As a grub, Meridth could be found reading books during math class, writing stories during lunchtime, and drawing pictures all over her arms and legs (if she ran out of paper). She was pretty delighted when she found out you could do that sort of thing for a living. So she got a BFA in Illustration from BYU. While at college, she had the good fortune of interning with Brad Holland and Brett Helquist. She has received the SCBWI LA National Conference mentorship award, which was pretty neat. Meridth lives in Central California with her husband, kids, and a paper eating corgi.
