Meghan Bliss is the owner and head writer at TheLadyinRead.com, a blog for women who read, write, and want to be read. After almost four years in finance, Meghan quit her job to write full time. She spends her days blogging, writing novels, and trying to stay off of Pinterest. She also copyedits books, newsletters, manuals, and basically anything else you throw at her — including subtitles and restaurant menus. Her first novel will be released this year. When she’s not writing or editing, you can find her reading, clumsily practicing the ukulele, or watching old sitcoms and superhero movies with her husband, cat, and baby-to-be. And, as always, trying to find the perfect shade of red lipstick.
