Meg Fleming has built many wonders in the field of construction. Her greatest architectural achievement is a 17-foot gum wrapper chain that she made in the car when she was eleven years old. She loves hatching ideas, then building . . . and building . . . until they become her favorite thing: a story. Meg writes from her home outside of San Francisco with her husband and kids who build things out of wood and wheels, flour and sugar, and bits and bytes... and her dog who always wears a hardhat. She is also the award winning author of I Heart You. Please visit Meg at
