Erin Chack was born and raised in New Jersey, where she grew up forming strong opinions about bagels. In the literal five minutes when she's not writing, Erin enjoys cooking, running, and whittling spoons out of wood, which is a hobby she'll probably be over by the time this book is published. She's a senior writer at BuzzFeed dot com the website, where her posts have received over 250 million views to date. She lives in Astoria, Queens with plants that are definitely still alive and not dead haha why would you even suggest that. This Is Really Happening is her first book.
