Author Bio - Meg Rosoff

This week, we're reading How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff.  We've talked about this book a few times, and it's also been made into a movie.  Alex and I love this book and decided that, this week, we want to share the love.

She looks very much like Meryl Streep in this picture, no?

Rosoff was born and raised in America, but went to London for her education.  She spent a few years there, and then came back to the United States to work.  In 1989, she permanently moved to London, where she currently resides.

Rosoff has worked a variety of jobs at ad agencies and publishing companies, before deciding to write in 2003.  It was shortly after her younger sister passed away from breast cancer that she started writing.  How I Live Now was published in 2004, just one short week after Rosoff herself was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Rosoff has a website that links to all of her social media.
