Author: Robin Palmer

After a decade-long career in Hollywood, Robin Palmer regained her sanity and chucked her cushy network executive job and expense account to become a writer. Which -- she quickly discovered once her savings account was depleted -- may not have been so sane.

Luckily her perseverance (and love of hanging out at home alone all day in yoga pants and no makeup) paid off with the publication of her first YA book CINDY ELLA, the first in a series of modern retellings of fairy tales set in a fictional Los Angeles high school. This was followed by GEEK CHARMING (soon to be a Disney Channel original movie), LITTLE MISS RED, WICKED JEALOUS, and THE CORNER OF BITTER AND SWEET.

In addition, she also has a middle grade series called YOURS TRULY, LUCY B. PARKER, about a twelve-year-old girl whose new stepsister is literally the most popular girl in the world because she's a Hollywood superstar.

She lives in a pink barn in the Hudson Valley region of New York.

Gilmore Girls meets Postcards from the Edge crossed with L.A. Candy!

Sixteen-year-old Annabelle Jacobs never asked to be famous, but as the daughter of Janie Jacobs, one of the biggest TV stars in the world, she is. Growing up is hard enough. Having to do it in public because your mother is a famous actress? Even harder. When your mom crashes and burns after her DUI mug shot is splashed across the internet? Definitely not fun. Then your mom falls for a guy so much younger than she that it would be more appropriate for you to be dating him? That’s just a train wreck waiting to happen.

From Robin Palmer, author of Geek Charming and Wicked Jealous, this is a novel about the most complicated relationship a girl ever has: that with her mother.
