Andrea Kail began pretending to read at a very young age in order to keep up with a much older, much smarter brother. However, once she discovered that the whole reading thing was actually kinda cool, she promptly stole all his "Lord of the Rings" books and has never given them back. Reading quickly led to writing which eventually led to the Dramatic Writing Program at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Since graduating, Andrea has worked in New York's film and television industry at such networks as HBO, Nickelodeon, MTV and Comedy Central. Currently she's the script coordinator at Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
In 2004 she attended the Odyssey Writing Workshop where she studied fiction writing with World Fantasy Award winning editor Jeanne Cavelos and New York Times bestselling author George RR Martin.
Born and raised on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Andrea still lives in that neighborhood along with two cats and her uber-supportive husband Michael.
