"This Harvard grad and working mom is the perfect combination
of style and substance." - ESSENCE magazine
Hi, y'all! I like to write stuff that people want to read, and host shows that people want to watch. I'm always interested in possible collaborations and new projects, so feel free to reach out!
Right now I'm getting ready to promote my upcoming book Pregnancy, OMG!, working on my debut novel, and helping my son survive first grade (this week's spelling homework includes the word 'industrious').
Previously, I interviewed celebrities and hosted talk shows on both television and online. My four years of on-air hosting at HuffPost Live and on FOX TV's short-lived So-Me talk show earned me a 2016 GLAAD Award nomination and some very interesting fan mail. Prior to that, I was a spokeswoman for brands like Kotex and Dale Carnegie.
My writing has made The New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists and has also garnered a NAACP Image Award nomination, a Mom's Choice Award, and a National Parenting Publications Award. Over the years, I've been a contributing editor and columnist for an eclectic variety of magazines and websites.
While I live in Los Angeles right now, I'm originally from a small town in Southern Virginia. Every summer, I take my college sweetheart, actor Rupak Ginn (Royal Pains, Highland), and our two kids back home for a month or two so that they can get a taste of the good life.
