So excited to share my conversation with my friend Meg Donohue, a USA Today Bestselling Author. This was a super fun podcast for me because not only is Meg a Philadelphia native, but she also is best friends with my cousin Anna Ficken Lesovitz and friends with my sister Patrice Hayden Meagher. Just like me, Meg spends three weeks in Avalon, NJ every — in fact, that’s where we recorded this interview!

Meg was born and raised right outside Philadelphia in Chestnut Hill where she attended Penn Charter and then continued onto Dartmouth for college and Columbia University for grad school. She now resides in San Francisco with her husband and three beautiful young girl ages ten, eight, and five.

Throughout our conversation, Meg tells us all about her journey of how she became a writer of five incredible novels. She writes with warmth and humor about love, hope, family, friendship, loss, and forgiveness. I am not that familiar with this industry so it was super interesting to learn about how each novel comes together.  I hope you enjoy my conversation with Meg as much as I did!
