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 a 24-year career in journalism and writing, I have written continuously 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, 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. 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 graduated from Columbia College of Columbia University, with a B.A. and the English Department Award for Critical Writing. Having lived in New York for nearly 25 years, I now live in Philadelphia with my husband and three children.
