Meredith Jaeger has lived and travelled around the world, spending periods in the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, and Australia. She is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area. While working at a San Francisco startup, Meredith fulfilled a lifelong dream to write a novel, the result of which was The Dressmaker’s Dowry.

The Dressmaker’s Dowry is women’s fiction and a dual narrative, set in both present-day and Victorian-era San Francisco. It follows Sarah Havensworth, a journalist with a dark secret, who suspects her heirloom engagement ring holds the answer to an unsolved mystery from 1876—the disappearance of two immigrant seamstresses. The deeper Sarah digs, the more she realizes the Havensworths have secrets of their own, and that she and Hanna Schaeffer, one of the missing women, might be linked in unexpected ways.

Meredith lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and their English bulldog. She’s currently at work on her next novel.  Meredith is represented by Jenny Bent of The Bent Agency
