Shelby reads and writes more than any sane person should. She is a wedding photographer, veggie burger snob and unabashed fan of Gossip Girl, Gilmore Girls and The Golden Girls. She considers the Alamo Drafthouse her home away from home.┬áNow that she’s in her late 20s, she’s a little embarrassed by her undying love for teen movies and YA fiction, so she prefers to consider it research for her future career as a screenwriter and novelist. She has a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a fetish for copy-editing.
