Hi!  My name is Meredith J. Berlin. 
I wrote The Ghost LIght Kids Get Hooked. 
I got lots of help and support from my family. 

                       Here we are on a snowy day in Seattle.

My children Keara and Anthony gave me lots of ideas. 
Keara (standing on the left with the red sled) came up with the idea of having Captain Hook appear when Maggie and Jacob knock over the ghost light.  Anthony (in the blue coat) was really good at letting me know whether the dialogue sounded like real kids talking.  Larry, my husband, helped Keara create the cover illustration.
