I'm an avid reader who makes time to watch TV in between books. I've hosted readings and moderated literary panels at various bookstores, conferences, and festivals across the country. I'm the creator of Slaughterhouse 90210, a blog and book (Flatiron Books, 2015) that celebrates the intersection of literature and pop culture. I'm a writer and critic whose work has appeared in the New York Times, the LA Times, Vanity Fair, BuzzFeed Books, The Toast, The Hairpin, Vulture, Esquire, GQ, OUT Magazine, and more. I was previously the editorial director of digital content at B&N.com, and a publishing outreach lead at Kickstarter. As a former book editor (Free Press/S&S) and editorial director of Book of the Month, I very much enjoy critiquing my own writing. I live in Brooklyn with my husband, my dog, and my books.
