Jane McGivney is a writer and lives in Brooklyn. She grew up in a suburb of New York (fine... Long Island), and attended Columbia. She currently works in advertising.
Jane occasionally takes a desultory stab at writing a novel, and hopes that admitting it will shame her into finishing. She is jealous of Carson Meyer, who is 11 and The Huffington Post's youngest blogger, but agrees with him about school lunches and Jessica Simpson.
