Hometown: West Caldwell, NJ
Where I live now: Los Angeles, CA
Fave book of ALL time: Oh man! Not sure I have one. But I think the book I needed most to be me would be White Teeth by Zadie Smith.
Person who inspires me the most: My whole family!
What made me want to become a writer: The fact that I couldn’t stop writing. It’s the best high I’ve ever had.
Music I listen to when I write: Usually movie soundtracks, but also techno, electronica, and experimental stuff. And sometimes really dumb pop music.
Fave place to work: Dinner table, which is a bad idea. It’s lower than my desk, so it’s worse for my back! But I have more room to sip tea on it, so….
Writers I look up to: Zadie Smith, Terry Pratchett, JK Rowling, Samantha Irby, Lydia Davis, Kelly Link, Tanuja Desai Hidier, Brene Brown…oh, there’s too many. And those are only the ones I don’t know personally.
Favorite GIF ever:
This is the best meme:
My favorite story I wrote/made for HelloGiggles is… “How Captain America helped me find a friend in the real world” because it made the friend I talked about cry.
The title of my memoir would be…BLUNDER WOMAN.
