Ever since she can remember, ten-year-old Melody has always wanted to fly.

And when she leaps off a swing in the park one day and lands in the mystical land of Chimeroan, her dream finally comes true. She is given a pair of wings. She can fly! Life cannot be any better.

Yet, dreams do come with a price. Even with wings, Melody realizes she cannot outfly the memories of her past. The car accident that has left her father paralyzed, and her unscarred, still plagues her with guilt—she believes that it was entirely her fault.

In Chimeroan, Melody is forced to come to terms with her part in her father's accident. She must choose between the two things that have become the world to her: keeping her wings and healing her father.

AnnMarie Meyers grew up in Trinidad and Tobago and graduated from Mount Saint Vincent University, Halifax, Nova Scotia. After leaving university, she got a job at the Trinidad and Tobago Tourist Board and later at the United Nations, New York. She became a freelance translator. Somewhere in the middle of all of this, she started writing and never stopped.

Though adults were her initial target audience, this changed  after her daughter was born and ideas for children’s stories kept pouring in. Up In The Air, is her first children’s book.
