Meredith is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area and a graduate of the University of California, Santa Cruz. She is the daughter of a Swiss father and an American mother. 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 nights and 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, will be published in June 2018 and is set in Santa Cruz and Hollywood, California. Meredith lives outside San Francisco with her husband, toddler and spoiled English bulldog, where she now writes full time.
