Louise Moeri


Louise Moeri graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1946, married Edwin Albert Moeri, and settled in the little town of Manteca. From 1961 to 1978, she was an assistant librarian at the Manteca Branch Library.

In 1972, she submitted a short story to the "Jack and Jill" magazine entitled "A Shaggy Dog Story." The story was accepted and her literary career was launched. Just three years later, her first book, "Star Mother's Youngest Child." was published.

Since that time, Louise has had 10 books published. All of her hooks are written for children, and are about serious subjects such as war, child abuse, and nuclear meltdown.

Her sixth book, "The First Egg," published in 1982, was made into an ABC television movie special.

In 1977, Louise was recognized by the Manteca City Council for the publication of her books.
