My name is Susan Gregory Thomas. I have written for a living since I was 19 years old, and it’s not an easy gig. Having said that, I’ve really lucked out.
Over the course of quarter century career in journalism and writing, I have written for the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, U.S. News & World Report, Time, More, Marie Claire, Glamour, Philadelphia Magazine, and others, as well as serving as an on-air contributor to MSNBC, CBS, ABC’s Nightline, public television, NPR, and others. In the 1990’s, I was co-host and writer on public television’s “Digital Duo,” a Siskel and Ebert show for the tech age (they did “thumbs up” or “thumbs down”; we did “save” or “delete.”)
I have written two books (In Spite of Everything: A Memoir, Random House, 2011; Buy, Buy Baby: How Consumer Culture Manipulates Parents and Harms Young Minds, Houghton Mifflin, 2007), launched the Web versions of Time Inc.’s flagship magazines, developing original cable television series, and am active in social media and blogging.
I graduated from Columbia College of Columbia University, with a B.A. and the English Department Award for Critical Writing. I’ve lived in Brooklyn since 1994, and I still do, with my husband and three children.
