Hello! I'm a writer, editor, animal lover, candy hoarder, amusement-park obsessive, horror-film buff and Washington, DC native.
I'm the author of "Fight Like a Girl: 50 Feminists Who Changed the World" (Zest Books, 2016), "The End: 50 Apocalyptic Visions From Pop Culture That You Should Know About...Before It's Too Late" (Zest Books, July 2012), and "Madonna & Me: Women Writers on the Queen of Pop" (Soft Skull, Mar. 2012). I also co-wrote Lauren Urasek's "Popular" (Sterling, 2015) and did a fun little series of Q&A journals for tweens called "OMG," "BFF," and "XOXO" (Sterling, 2015).
I've written features, essays, profiles, and reviews for more than 50 publications, including Salon, NYTimes.com, Marie Claire, VanityFair.com, the Village Voice, the Guardian, Cosmopolitan, Esquire.com, ELLE.com, Rookie, and NYLON.
