I was born in Montreal, Canada. After graduating with an honors degree in English literature from McGill University, I moved to Toronto to work for Harlequin Enterprises.
While I never met Fabio, I used my romance publishing experiences to fuel my first novel MILKRUN. (It's all about a girl who works for a romance publisher but can't find a decent boyfriend.)
Since then, I've written four additional novels for adults: Fishbowl, As Seen on TV, Monkey Business, and Me vs. Me; the New York Times bestselling middle grade series Whatever After; the middle grade series Upside-Down Magic (with Lauren Myracle and Emily Jenkins); and the teen novels Bras & Broomsticks, Frogs & French Kisses, Spells & Sleeping Bags, and Parties & Potions (all in the Magic in Manhattan series), as well as Gimme a Call, Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn't Have), Think Twice, Don't Even Think About It, and most recently, I See London, I See France. Along with Lauren Myracle and E. Lockhart, I also wrote How to Be Bad, and along with Farrin Jacobs, I wrote See Jane Write, a guide to writing.
I also co-edited two bestselling charity collections (Girls' Night In and Girls' Night Out), and have contributed to various anthologies (American Girls About Town, Sixteen: Stories About That Sweet and Bitter Birthday, 21 Proms, First Kiss (Then Tell), Fireworks, and Vacations from Hell).
My books have been translated into twenty-nine languages and optioned to Hollywood.
I now live in New York City with my husband and two (adorable) daughters.
My new novel, I SEE LONDON, I SEE FRANCE, is coming out July 11th! Check out a sneak peek of it right here on Wattpad!
