Meg North wrote her first story about a Halloween party when she was about four years old. Since then, it’s just been one after another. Inspiring 19th century musicals like “Les Miserables” and “The Phantom of the Opera,” not to mention lush period dramas from the BBC, caused her to fall in love with the 1800’s. While still a teenager, she began the decade-long research into the Civil War for her debut novel, Daniel’s Garden. She finished it in early 2009, and it has received rave reviews.
Meg lives in Portland, Maine, with her husband and a funny snoring pug. She gives tours at the Longfellow House, enabling her to share her passion for the past. She is interested in anything 19th century, from Transcendentalism to Impressionism to the Wild West.
