About Meryl Davids Landau
Thanks for your interest in my work! My latest book is Enlightened Parenting: A Mom Reflects on Living Spiritually With Kids, a finalist in two book-award competitions.. My prior book, the spiritual/yoga women's novel Downward Dog, Upward Fog, was a finalist in the small-press fiction-book-of-the-year competition by Foreword Reviews magazine.
For more than 20 years, I have written engaging, informative, and entertaining articles, often on quick deadlines, for numerous national consumer publications and websites, especially on the topics of health, lifestyle, holistic health, science, parenting, family issues, general-interest issues, and even money and business. I am also a former magazine editor. My work has won numerous awards, including a nomination for a prestigious National Magazine Award and a 1st-place outstanding-article award from the American Society of Journalists & Authors.
My articles have appeared in Consumer Reports, U.S. News & World Report, Glamour, O: the Oprah magazine, Vice Media, Parents, Reader’s Digest, Good Housekeeping, Whole Living, More, Prevention, Self, Ladies Home Journal, Remedy, and many other publications in print and online. You can see a sampling of my many articles here.
I also blog regularly about yoga, holistic topics, and parenting for the Huffington Post and other sites. Find my Huffington Post blogs here. I hope you'll become a regular follower.
I am a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA), the Association for Health Care Journalists (AHCJ), PEN America, and the National League of American Pen Women. I was one of a handful of national writers selected to spend a week at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as an AHCJ-CDC Fellow, and another week at the NIH's National Library of Medicine.
