Description

Susan Meddaugh graduated from Wheaton College, where she studied French literature and fine arts. After working briefly with an advertising agency in New York, she moved to Boston and worked at a publishing company for 10 years, first as a designer, then art editor, and finally as art director. While there, she did the illustrations for Good Stones, (Houghton Mifflin) by Anne Epstein, and then decided to strike out on her own as a freelance illustrator and creator of children's books. Since that time, Meddaugh has written and illustrated many popular books for children, including Martha Speaks which was chosen as a New York Times Best Illustrated Book for 1992. In 1998 she was awarded the New England Book Award, given by the New England Booksellers Association to recognize a body of work. Her work also was acknowledged with a New York Times, Best Illustrated Award.
