Meg Fleming grew up in the Suburbs of Chicago. After earning her degree in Vocal Music from the University of Illinois, she taught middle school students to sing, annunciate and clap with rhythmic accuracy. Once everyone was able to clap well enough, she moved on to raise her children and pursue a career in writing. When Meg isn’t entertaining imaginary friends, she is likely laughing, reading or training for some odd race that she signed up for on a dare. Meg writes from her home outside of Chicago where she lives with her three kids, her one husband and a scratchy-sniffy dog. Her debut picture book, <em>I [Heart] You</em> is forthcoming from Beach Lane Books, an imprint of S&S.
