    Anna Godbersen is the New York Times bestselling author of The Luxe (Harper, 2008), which was called “compulsively readable” by Kirkus Reviews. Her sophomore series, Bright Young Things (Harper, 2011), is currently in development at ABC and will be produced by John Wells (ER, The West Wing, Shameless) and Alloy Entertainment. The Blonde (Weinstein Books, 2014) is her debut adult novel.

    Anna grew up in Berkeley, California, in a house full of batik-covered second-hand furniture and dusty books acquired at yard sales. As a shy and dreamy child she learned to love books, especially ones that could transport her to another time and place, particularly the D’Aulaires’ collections of myths and Marion Zimmer Bradley’s The Mists of Avalon.

    At eighteen she moved east to attend Barnard College in Morning Side Heights, where she first encountered The House of Mirth and The Great Gatsby and so many other storied accounts of her new city. Although she completed a collection of short stories for her college thesis, she hadn’t yet found her voice as a writer and worked as a magazine assistant, a bartender, a book reviewer, and a ghostwriter for a few years before publishing her first novel in 2006. She currently lives in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn, where she is working on her next novel out of an old warehouse on the East River waterfront, where the cacophony of tugboats and backhoes is strong, but the wireless signal is blessedly weak.
