Meera Trehan

Meera Trehan grew up in the Washington, DC suburbs where she read as much as she could, 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. Her debut, THE VIEW FROM THE VERY BEST HOUSE IN TOWN was named a Junior Library Guild Gold Selection (print book and audio book) and an Amazon Editor’s Pick, and her second novel comes out in 2024.
