About Lauri

Lauri Meyers is a writer who believes the best way to learn, to grow, and to feel is through a good laugh (and occasionally a good scare) delivered in the pages of a book. 

Camp Tak-a-Wak-a 

Her first publication was “Camp Tak-a-Wak-a” in the Chillicothe Ohio 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 continues this tradition by torturing her own children with a red pen or more often the delete key.

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 one-page recommendations. Fun fact: Memos are about 500 words, like picture books, but memos have to be simplified more because adults have lost their childhood wit.

Lauri is a member of the SCBWI. Children's Book Insider, and 12x12. Her stories and poetry have been published in Little Thoughts Press, Clubhouse Jr., Spaceports & Spidersilk, Stinkwaves, and Guardian Angel Kids magazines.  She was selected for the PB Chat Mentorship in 2021. She attended the Rutgers University Council on Children's Literature conference in 2017. When she received her first "1" rating from Rate Your Story, she did a fancy jig all around the house. 

She loves writing contests. She won an Honorable Mention in the Rate Your Story contest in 2015.  Her poems and stories have been finalists (six times!) in Susanna Hill's seasonal contests, Vivian Kirkfield's 50 Precious Words, and Fall Writing Frenzy.

Lauri lives in New Jersey with two kids who give tough critiques, a husband who plays along when she brainstorms crazy questions, and a shih tzu who keeps the rug under her desk warm. In her spare time she volunteers at the local library, helps with the PTO, and runs two Girl Scout troops.
