About Me

Well, hello, there....

Thanks for coming over! A little about me. First things first: I'm not a wet nurse and never have been (sorry to disappoint!). I'm actually a nonprofit communications professional and freelance writer, and I live with my husband and son in the Chicago area. I like reality TV, checklists, celebrity gossip, reading, giving my unsolicited opinion and carbs.

I spent several years editing b-to-b magazines before shifting to nonprofit work, where I now work for an organization that helps homeless families get back on their feet. I love my day job, and being a mom and writer as well keeps me even busier! I write for several major beauty trade publications and companies, and I was a contributor to WOMEN REINVENTED: TRUE STORIES OF EMPOWERMENT AND CHANGE (LaChance Publishing, 2010). 

My first novel, MILKED, was originally published by Simon & Fig in 2014, (Check out the Kirkus review here!) After Simon & Fig closed its doors, new Chicago-based publisher Lang Verhaal acquired rights to the novel. I'm thrilled to announce that it'll be re-released with a new cover and 2019 updates on May 3!

IRL, I can be found at a handful of places, namely Target, work, the library, my kid's school, my mom's house, and the park (literally that's it. Sometimes book club and Bunco!). But if you're going to stalk me, I prefer you do so online, where you can find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @bylisadoyle.
