I’m a writer and children’s library assistant living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have an M.A. from Syracuse University in Television-Radio-Film (but mostly television) and a B.A. in Political Communication from The George Washington University.
I watched a lot of The West Wing growing up, and couldn’t decide if I wanted to write speeches or screenplays. I’ve learned how to do both, and loved each a lot. Now I work in a public library. In the end, my passion revolves are reading, writing, finding good stories, and helping to connect those with an audience.
In 2011 when I was studying abroad I felt disconnected in a lot of ways and solved that problem by joining the team at (the now defunct) Off Color TV. It was a fun community of television recaps, reviews, and more. While there I wrote and edited over 100 posts covering Parks & Recreation, The Newsroom, The Mindy Project, Teen Wolf, and more.
I’m also a YA writer. I was selected for Pitch Wars in 2017, where my YA manuscript went through heavy revisions. I always have at least one project in progress.
This blog is an outlet for my writing. You’ll find a lot of rambling, a few essays, some stories about my writing journey, a lot of TV recommendations and an occasional book review. If there’s anything you’d like me to write about, tweet me @mollytheghost.
