My name is Susan Gregory Thomas. I have written for a living my entire adult life. It’s a blisteringly tough gig. Having said that, I’ve really lucked out.
Over the course of a 24-year career in journalism and writing, I have written continuously for the country’s top newspapers and magazines, as well as serving as an on-air contributor to MSNBC, CBS, ABC’s Nightline, public television, NPR, and others. 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, am currently developing an original cable television series, and am active in social media and blogging. I’ve recently moved to Philadelphia, where I’ve been asked to write a new mommy blog and teach at the literary arts center MuseHouse.
I graduated from Columbia College of Columbia University, with a B.A. in English. I live in Philadelphia with my husband and three children.
