Andrea Stanley is a published writer whose work has appeared in SELF, Glamour, Babble, Chicago Tribune, Orlando Sentinel, and various other publications.

During the course of this past year, she became an ex-suburbanite, trading in her white picket fence in the suburbs for a view of the Statue of Liberty in the big city.

When Andrea isn’t busy selling words by the pound, she can be found scouring the endless nooks of NYC, always on the hunt for a good book, a great glass of champagne and a fabulous pair of shoes, or two…or five.

She shares her love for life in the city with the two loves of her life, her husband, Greg, and itty-bitty city tot, Connor.
