Hi, thanks for visiting my site! I was born in Arkansas, then spent my teenage years in a small Georgia town where the Waffle House counts as fine dining. I left home at 16 and moved to Paris, because it sounded terribly romantic. Life was sweet, even though my terrible French meant that my relationships were often lost in translation: I would ask for a box of tampons and my boyfriend came home with stamps.
I moved to New York the following year, attended New York University and spent several years writing for Fashion Wire Daily and New York magazine. My job as a celebrity reporter allowed me access to everyone from Playboy bunnies to heads of state, and I found myself interviewing Ozzy Osbourne on a leopard-print bed at Sundance, flying to LA for the Vanity Fair Oscar party and ambushing Tony Blair over cocktails. But my wildest stories happened in my private life.
My next adventure took me to London, where I picked up an MA in International Journalism from City University and started writing the ‘Sleeping Around’ dating column for The Independent newspaper.
My columns were turned into a book, Sleeping Around: Secrets of a Sexual Adventuress (John Murray, 2007), which, along with the sequel, Breaking the Rules: Confessions of a Bad Girl (2008), sold more than 100,ooo copies worldwide.
As a freelance writer, my work has appeared in publications including Elle.com, Grazia, Marie Claire, GQ, Marie Claire, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, The Times, the Daily Mail, thefix.com and the New York Post. I have appeared on various TV and radio programs, and know how to brew a perfect cup of tea.
After moving to Los Angeles, I completed the DGA Detectives Master Investigator training program and am currently working toward my California private investor license. I’m also writing a book about using detective skills in my love life.
