About the Author

Cari Meister

From a young age, Cari made up stories. One of her favorite places to make up stories was on her grandpa and grandma's farm in southern Minnesota. There, she would find a quiet little spot in the corn field, or on a swing and let her imagination wander.

Cari has lived in Minnesota, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania. She now resides in Evergreen, Colorado with her husband, John, their four boys, two horses, and a very energetic runaway dog named Koki.

Cari loves to visit libraries and schools and talk about the power of the imagination and the joy of reading.

Besides writing and reading, Cari enjoys running, skiing, riding horses, yoga, and playing with Playmobil toys.

Contact information: email Cari at mice2tiny@aol.com. She would love to hear from you.
