"The Bloggess" lives in Texas with her husband and daughter and was constantly "buying too many books" ("Not a real thing," she insists), so she decided to skip the middleman and just started her own bookshop, which also serves booze because books and booze are what magic is made of. She has previously written "Let's Pretend This Never Happened" and "Furiously Happy," both of which were #1 New York Times bestsellers.
