A writer’s job is to find the right word(s). To create sturdy, nimble sentences polished with fresh tone and grace. And sometimes have a little fun. Kind of like mad libs, right?
Because bios are typically flat, inflated, predictable and/or all of the above, I’d like to offer an alternative: Steph’s Bio Lib. (Or, if you must, the straight-up scoop is available too, just give me a call or let’s grab a beer.)
During the 20 years I edited Skirt!, Stephanie’s essays were a mainstay of the magazine. Literate, thought-provoking and deep, her work drew a fiercely loyal following month after month. And if she didn’t appear in an issue (as rarely happened), I was sure to receive letters from readers demanding to know where she was and when she would be back. Stephanie is that rare writer who makes you think, “I wish I’d written that” — I know because I’ve so often envied her talent. It was a great privilege to have her in the magazine. She shines.
Stephanie has been my top go-to writer for 14 years. As a longtime contributing editor, she not only brings great ideas to the table but expertly crafts anything I ask her to write. Whether profiles, travel stories, or issue-oriented features, Stephanie delivers well thought-out and researched articles that educate and entertain our readers.
