Pseudonym: Jenny Carroll.
Pseudonym: Meggin Cabot.
Meg Cabot was born in Bloomington, Indiana—the heart of America. Her childhood was spent in pursuit of air conditioning, which she found at the Monroe County Public Library. Here Meggin whiled away many hours, reading the complete works of Jane Austen, Judy Blume, and Barbara Cartland.
Armed with a fine arts degree from Indiana University, she moved to New York City, and got a job as the assistant manager of an undergraduate dormitory at New York University, writing on the weekends (and whenever her boss wasn't looking). The first of her many historical romance novels written under the name Patricia Cabot, Where Roses Grow Wild, was published in 1998, followed shortly after by its sequel, Portrait of my Heart. An Improper Proposal and A Little Scandal followed shortly thereafter.
In addition to her romances, Meg is currently working on three series of books for young adult readers, including The Princess Diaries, The Mediator (under the name Jenny Carroll http://www.jennycarroll.com) and 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU (also by Jenny Carroll).
Film rights to The Princess Diaries were sold to Disney, and a feature length film based on the book was released in August 2001, with Pretty Woman's Garry Marshall directing, and starring Julie Andrews, among others. Film rights to All-American Girl have also been sold to Disney and a script is being written. Television rights for The Mediator series have been sold, and 1-800-WHERE-R-U was recently optioned by Lions Gate Films.
Meg lives in New York City with her husband and their one- eyed cat, Henrietta.
