Cynthia Dreeman Meyer is a preschool music teacher, the creator and founder of her hometown's annual Christmas Tree Festival (fundraiser for the local Senior Resource Center), a black-belt in Isshinryu Karate, and a retired trial attorney. She is also an award-winning Christmas-tree decorator. In fact, the inspiration for “Merry Stirring Mice” was a tree she created for the Tree Festival several years ago, adorned with mice uncharacteristically stirring on Christmas Eve. During class trips to the Festival, Meyer invented a story to go with the tree about Santa's secret team of mice, stirring all over the world to make candy for the stockings. Children and teachers loved the story, encouraged Meyer to write it down, and that's how it all got started.
