Thank you for taking the time to talk to us about your newest book, My Friend fear.
Who is Meera Lee Patel in her own words?
I’m an author and illustrator interested in creating work that helps connect people to themselves, each other, and the world around them.
Is your new book, My Friend fear, a reflection of the theme you’ve concentrated on with regards to or in lieu of resolutions you’ve made for 2018?
'My Friend fear' is a mediation on all of the fears that have followed me my entire life, up to now.
I created a resolution last year, while writing this book, that I’ll never turn down an opportunity—whether it’s to say hello to a stranger, meet someone new, or a chance to teach others—because I am scared.
