About me

Gender Female
Industry Publishing
Occupation Writer/Editor
Location Brooklyn, NY, United States
Introduction I'm a writer and editor (my favorite staff jobs: ELLEgirl Features Editor and Seventeen Prom Editor). All in the name of journalism, I have spent 24 hours with male models and attended an elite finishing school for girls in New Zealand, among other hardships. In 2006, I fulfilled a life-long dream by appearing as a talking head “expert” on VH1’s The Fabulous Life of Celebrity Kids. I live in Brooklyn. My YA series, the Violet on the Runway books, are out now.
