Meera Trehan

Meera Trehan read as much as she could as a child, memorized poems, and ate enough cookies to earn the nickname “Monster” after the Cookie Monster. After attending the University of Virginia and Stanford Law School, she practiced public interest law for over a decade before turning to writing for children. Meera writes everything from picture books to young adult but has a soft spot for middle grade. Her debut novel, THE VIEW FROM THE VERY BEST HOUSE IN TOWN (Walker Books US) releases February 2022. She lives in Maryland with her family.

Visiting Our Campus

Our campus (The Barn at Boyds Mills) is tucked away in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  It's a few hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, but worlds away from everyday life.
