About Lauri

Lauri Meyers is a children's book writer who believes the best way to learn, to grow, and to feel is through a good laugh delivered in the pages of a book. 


Camp Tak-a-Wak-a 

Her first publication was “Camp Tak-a-Wak-a” in the Chillicothe Gazette when she was in sixth grade. She credits her Dad who taught her to spell using medical journals, and her Mom who wielded a red pen for "suggestions."

She took a break from writing to study finance. In her corporate finance career she stuck out as the “creative” one, but excelled at writing the one-page recommendation. Fun fact: Memos are about 500 words, like picture books, but memos have to be simplified more because adults have lost their childhood wit.
