Author: Amy Meyerson

Amy Meyerson comes from a family whose first indulgence is travel. Her parents love to travel so much that her mother became a travel agent, back in the day when hotels wooed travel agents and airlines served actual meals. Amy's parents took her and her brother to almost every state in the US, as well as to much of Europe. As soon as she was old enough, Amy made it a point to travel on her own and see other parts of the world. She's lived in Ecuador and Mexico, and has visited Southeast Asia, South America, Africa, as well as Eastern and Western Europe. She has also lived across the U.S., feeling as comfortable in the mountains of Colorado as in the brownstones of Brooklyn, NY.

Currently, Amy lives in Los Angeles, where she teaches college Composition and Literature. As a teacher and writer, Amy's travels inform her work and interactions with her students. She has her Master of Professional Writing from The University of Southern California and her B.A. from Wesleyan University. She's currently at work on a novel and a collection of short stories inspired by her many travels.
