Margaret Meacham is pleased to announce the publication of two young adult novels --
The Ghosts of Laurelford, a historical mystery that takes place in the Laurel mountains outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is 1919 and 15-year-old Lacey Gillespie would rather be working on women’s suffrage than visiting the Taymeyer mansion with her grandfather.
The Survival of Sarah Landing is a mystery novel set on the Chesapeake Bay. One picture book artist meets another – but one of them disappears.
Margaret Meacham grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and spent her childhood summers visiting her grandmother on the Chesapeake Bay, where many of her books, including "Secret of Heron Creek" and "Oyster Moon," take place. In 1975 she received her BA degree in English Literature from Trinity College, and she received an MLS degree from University of Maryland in 1977. She teaches writing and children's literature at Goucher College and online through Gotham Writer's Workshop in New York City.
