I'm a writer from Minnesota, living in Brooklyn. I am the author of the memoirs Never Have I Ever and Would You Rather?, as well as the novels Dear Emma and Public Relations (co-authored with Arianna Rebolini). My young adult debut, Girl, Crushed, will be published with Knopf Books for Young Readers in summer 2020. I have written for the New York Times' Modern Love column, Cosmopolitan, New York magazine, The Atlantic, and others. Before joining the Cut as senior health writer, I worked as a freelance writer, and at BuzzFeed as a writer and editor.
