Meg Feeley was born in Brooklyn. Her grandfather owned Ben Kallman's Frosted Foods, which introduced frozen corn on the cob to Coney Island as a snack food. Among her memories are a renegade ride on the Thunderbolt on a February night in the 1980s, a few years after the roller coaster had closed down. Meg is a writer who has written many poems inspired by her experiences in Coney Island.
