Los Angeles Writers

Meghan Rose – Los Angeles Editor
As a mother of twins, Meghan is always on the lookout for family-friendly things to do- and while exploring Los Angeles with kids, she’s found tons that she’d never dreamed existed. When not exploring the city, Meghan is writing, eating, cooking, running, or reading – children’s literacy is one of her other passions (if you’re looking for book suggestions for kids of any age, check out www.litforkids.com).  Get to know our LA Editor.
