About this author

Meryl Yourish is a graduate of the Clarion Science Fiction and Fanstasy Writers Workshop (1990, Michigan State University). She has been writing since the ninth grade, when her very first short story was published in the Parents Night magazine.

Meryl spent most of her life in northeastern New Jersey. She moved to Richmond, VA in 2002, where she lives with two cats that look suspiciously like Goldeneyes and Letsan.

Not satisfied with overmedicating children for ADHD, some scientists are now saying we should medicate children who daydream. Which means that had I been born in this modern generation, I would have been ripe for being diagnosed with this brand-new “disorder”. I remember doing a lot of daydreaming in school. And yet, I managed to graduate high school and college without being dosed for it.
