Megan grew up in Troy, Michigan and attended Alma College. She now lives in Chicago with her husband Alejandro and their two daughters Gabriela and Camila. Goodnight, Little Orcas was inspired by her daughter's love of stuffed animals and books. Megan wanted Gabriela to have a fun book featuring orcas to go along with her favorite stuffed orca.
Megan is a Chicago Public Schools first-grade teacher in the Little Village neighborhood. Her hope is that Goodnight, Little Orcas will spark children's interest in ocean animals and marine life.
