Born in Armenia and raised in the United States, Meri Tumanyan currently resides in California.  She received a B.A. in Comparative Literary Studies from Occidental College and an M.A. in Creative Writing from California State University Northridge. She is a mother, a full-time high school teacher, and an adjunct English professor.  

She is the author of the poetry collections Love in the Time of Corona, Shadows, Gods & Other Mishaps:  The Untold Stories, and The Promise of the Pomegranate Tree.  Her poems celebrate the power of unconditional, all-encompassing love as a healing force.  Poetry gives form to chaos, unveils the hidden beauty in oneself, in others, and in life.  

Her children’s books Mommy, the Dreamweaver, Daddy’s Waltz, Never Be Anyone Other Than You, and The Girl With the Purple Umbrella capture the fond memories of her own children's lives and celebrate the spirit of childhood that resides in us all.
