I’m a twenty-something reader/writer/television assistant living in Los Angeles, California. 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 also spent a semester studying at the University of Sussex, where I fulfilled my dream of living in England.
I still think it’s weird and cool that I got a degree in watching, writing about, and creating television. It’s been my passion for as long as I can remember because I watch a lot of TV. Really use your imagination when I say a lot, because it wouldn’t be hyperbole to say that I watch TV more than I sleep. (On further reflection, yes, it might be.) I’m currently working in scripted television development which really boils down to reading a lot of books and scripts.
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.
When I’m not working, I write. I was selected for Pitch Wars in 2017 and my YA manuscript Good Game, Carter Hastings went through heavy revisions. I’m still polishing that and drafting a few other projects.
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.
