Her books have been named to the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers program as well as the BookSense '76 list, and she's the author of the online FAINT GLOW BLOG as well. ...more

Wodehouse's England of the 1920's, where I'd work in a little London bookstore by day and go out to hear American jazz by night, and wear flapper outfits and drink gin fizzes.

Goodbye. Maybe.

A curious anagram for "Meredith Annette Harper" is "That name retired her pen." Hmm. So maybe I ought to think about fulfilling the prophecy. Truth is, I've little ambition to write these days.

"A cute story of love lost and found. The UFO elements are woven throughout, but their true explanation is left up to the reader. Was there really an alien in the sky that night or was it all in their imaginations.

“To paraphrase the disappeared Jimmy Hoffa, who certainly didn’t go down in history for his foolish worries: “Eighty-five percent of what you worry about won’t ever come to pass. And you can always deal with that other fifteen percent.” Of course, look what happened to Jimmy Hoffa.”
M.A. Harper, The Worst Day Of My Life, So Far

“Let beloved idiots ruin their own lives, if that’s what they’re dead set on doing, with no attempt whatsoever at control or behavior modification from you.”
M.A. Harper, The Worst Day Of My Life, So Far

“That’s all they discussed, those neighbors of my mother’s: who had died; who was just about to drop dead; who was getting married to whom, so that they could have a miserable life together and then die.”
M.A. Harper, The Worst Day Of My Life, So Far
