I’ve written just about everything. And now I am writing novels.
Hometown: Pacific Palisades, California
College: I majored in English at the University of Pennsylvania.
Current day job: Copywriter at Disney in Los Angeles.
Personal life: My husband and I met 12 years ago on Valentine’s Day at a New York City drag queen bar (sadly, neither one of us was in drag). We live with our young children and two rescue dogs.
Brush with death (sort of): I was once knocked off my boogie board in Santa Monica Bay by a seven-foot blue shark. I wrote about it for one of my college essays, and after getting a call from Wesleyan saying that I got in off the wait list, the admissions person demanded that I admit that I made the story up. But it really happened (and I went to Penn instead).
Favorite food: Korean barbecue, followed closely by Mexican and Thai street food.
Favorite drink: Ice cold Champagne.
10 Favorite movies: The Philadelphia Story, Rear Window, The Big Lebowski, Terminator, Aliens, Star Wars, Goodfellas, Hannah and her Sisters, Tootsie, Gone with the Wind.
Inspo: Roald Dahl, Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Franzen, Camille Paglia, Willa Cather, Flannery O’Conner, Emily Dickinson, and ee cummings.
