Meiling Colorado is the author of the post-apocalyptic fantasy novel Aftermath. Born in London, she spent most of her childhood on tour with her parents, who were dancers. She grew up in a multi-ethnic family which, coupled with their semi-nomadic bohemian lifestyle, broadened her perception of the world. Mostly homeschooled, where many children were beginning to read and enjoy Dr. Seuss, Meiling was also reading and acting out scenes from Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream with her mother.
She was an avid reader from a very early age, deriving great pleasure from reading countless authors, different genres and styles, and channeling great part of her creativity into writing poems and short stories. As a professional Flamenco and Classical Spanish dancer, Meiling has travelled extensively, which made her aware of how necessary a change of direction in Humanity’s actions has become.
She now lives in Spain, on the beautiful island of Mallorca, with her husband and two children, alternating between writing, teaching English, translating and practising Permaculture. When there is time she really enjoys just breathing, being out in nature, and watching the sun set slowly on the horizon.
