Jilly Gagnon is currently based in Chicago, but is originally from Minnesota, a fact she'll likely inform you of within minutes of meeting you.
In the past, Jilly has written humor, news, essays, and op-ed pieces for Newsweek, Elle, Vanity Fair, The Huffington Post, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, The Onion, The Toast, and Boston's alt-weekly, The Dig, among others. She writes both comedy and young adult fiction.
Jilly loves terrible TV and excellent Manhattans. She often carries on far-too-involved conversations with her cats.
