Molly Shalgos was raised by a single father; and when she tries to do things like put on makeup or walk in high heels, it is extremely obvious. Television is her first love, and she speaks about the night she discovered Buffy the Vampire Slayer the way most people describe the night they met their significant other. She loves young adult novels, giant cups of coffee and writing, writing, and writing. She’s also spent some time working as a shopkeeper in a Harry Potter store, where she peddled fake wands and jelly beans in a multitude of disgusting flavors. Currently, she lives in Los Angeles, where her prize possession is a Labyrinth-era David Bowie action figure.
