Meira Pentermann

On slow, snowy days in her Colorado home, Meira Pentermann enjoys cozying up on the couch with a novel. Naturally, snow is not a requirement; neither is the couch. In fact, she sees no reason not to indulge in reading three-hundred-and-sixty-five days a year. Mysteries, dystopian science fiction, and young adult titles top her Kindle list, but legal thrillers and chick-lit make an appearance now and then.

When not absorbed in writing or reading, Meira enjoys life's little moments with her family - the love and devotion of her black lab, the quiet wisdom of her artistic twenty-two-year-old, the trials and triumphs of her petite seventh grader, and the unlimited encouragement offered by her Dutch husband.

Meira strives to write stories that deliver the unexpected. She prefers down-to-earth characters that look and behave like regular folks. The prom queen and Adonis take a backseat to reclusive, soul-searching heroines and quirky, introverted gentlemen.

Meira's first novel, Firefly Beach, released on March 16, 2009 through Lyrical Press, is a paranormal cozy mystery set on the coast of Maine.

Her second novel, Nine-Tenths, is a dystopian science fiction released in September of 2011.

Her third novel, a children's chapter book called Sarah and the Magic Mayonnaise Jar, came out in March of 2013.
