The Author

Author & Illustrator: Tori Meyer

What began as an attempt to explain why we thank American soldiers and Veterans to her young girls, a children’s book slowly blossomed. It began with an oil painting of a magestic tree at the Ft. Logan National Cemetery in Denver, Colorado, and developed into a book of dynamic imagery that incorporates both the author’s paintings and her daughter’s creations.

Many brilliant folks gave their time and feedback necessary to produce this book. Their valuable time enabled the family to donate partial book proceeds to Honor Flight, an organization that honors American Veterans.

This is surely a book the whole family will love!


“I want to thank you so much for your book Journey Home. It is so well written and illustrated. It will touch many hearts as it did mine.” — Mr. Victor Nelson, 100-year-old World War II Veteran 



Tori has a journalism degree from the University of Colorado, and is a continuing student of art.  She’s a full-time mom, and enjoys incorporating her girls’ artwork into her own.
