MEG ANNE BRIGHTON lives in the countryside near Charm, Ohio. Most days she can be found in her library/office writing. Family is important to her, and there are frequent family gatherings. She loves the Amish country and Charm, Ohio is the setting for two novels, The Fairy Tale and Tess of Owl Creek. She collects quilts by local quilters in Berlin, Ohio, and artwork by P. Buckley Moss. She loves looking for treasures in the Millersburg, Ohio thrift shop, and it was there that she found old pictures there that were inspirations for characters in The Fairy Tale.
