Austin, United States

Olivia Meredith presently hails from Austin, Texas, and she recommends the tacos over the BBQ. A woman without a childhood hometown, Olivia has lived across the U.S. in a variety of states including Michigan, New Jersey, Virginia, Washington D.C., before settling down in Texas. Inspired during her childhood to become a "very important writer," she (her mother) eventually steered her inclinations for writing away from creative pursuits and instead towards professional ones, realizing that legal briefs are a great opportunity for creative license (Mom wasn't wrong). To that end, at 24, she put herself through law school, and at 27, passed the Bar Exam, found a respectable job, and only then realized that trial level attorneys rarely ever write legal briefs. With her professional life secure but lacking satisfaction, Olivia picked up her pen and touchscreen, about a dozen books, subscribed to five new podcasts, ordered a 20 oz. chai latte, and set to screenwriting. She's currently working on two feature length screenplays and a handful of pilots. Olivia is 32 and lives in Austin.
