About the Author

Meg Mitchell Moore

Meg Mitchell Moore began writing as soon as she figured out how the cursive 'T' and 'F' were different and hasn't stopped since. Her debut novel, The Arrivals, was published in 2011 by Reagan Arthur Books, then an imprint of Little, Brown. Her second novel, So Far Away, was published in 2012 and was named one of the year's best adult novels for young adults by Booklist. Her third novel, The Admissions, was released in August 2015 from Doubleday and her latest work, The Captain's Daughter was launched July 18th. Before turning to fiction Meg worked as a freelance journalist for a variety of business and consumer magazines, where she often managed to pitch stories involving dogs. Before that she worked on the staff of a family of technology magazines. (Despite all of her time there, she is still trying to figure out what a server is.) Meg received a B.A. from Providence College and a master's degree in English Literature from New York University. The daughter of a Naval officer, Meg moved around every few years as a child, including a move her senior year of high school, which she is totally and completely over. Totally and completely: no scars. In 2012 Meg, her husband, their three children and a beloved border collie moved from Massachusetts to northern California.Despite California's many charms (including the settings that inspired much of The Admissions) , they lasted exactly one year and returned to the beautiful coastal town of Newburyport, Massachusetts, where they now live with a new puppy, a lot of laundry and a good amount of laughs. The characters in her novels have many juicy secrets, but Meg's own secrets are not so newsworthy. (Or are they? )
