Lily Koppel

Lily Koppel is the New York Times-bestselling author of THE ASTRONAUT WIVES CLUB that inspired the ABC television series and THE RED LEATHER DIARY (a most magical New York story about finding a young woman’s diary in an old trunk in a dumpster). She has been called “equal parts writer, dumpster diver extraordinaire.” As an author, she thinks of herself as between being a cosmic detective and an actress taking on the role of someone else’s life. She has written for the New York Times, the New York Times Magazine, the Daily Beast, the Huffington Post, and Glamour. She lives in New York City with her two spacey rescue dogs Ozzy and Lucky.

Under the pen name MF Kitchen, she’s whipping up something top-secret and tasty for kids with mind blowing information included with her debut novel, CORDON ROUGE. Long Live The Resistance de Fast Food!
