About the Author
Growing up in Edmonton, Canada, a significant amount of Stephanie’s time was spent making up and
acting out stories. She was studying to be an actress when she realized there weren’t any parts for
women being written. So, Stephanie wrote herself a short screenplay just to be in it and quickly realized
that writing was her true passion.
She graduated from the University of Alberta with an English and Sociology degree and she also has a
Bachelor of Motion Picture Arts (that’s a fancy term for Film School) from Red Deer College. After a
fateful trip to Mexico in 2006, Stephanie decided to move to New York City to work in film development.
A year later she went back home to write My Green House, a factual TV series. Stephanie moved to
London in 2008 and aside from being obsessed with Eggs Benedict, Fruit Roll Ups and travelling, she also
works in Children’s Television. The Accidental Socialite is her first novel.
