I first met Celena Cipriaso when we went to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts together, studying dramatic writing. Truth be told, we totally bonded over our love of Sweet Valley High books. Once we discovered this, we headed to the Barnes & Noble on Astor Place (which I don’t think exists any more) and read the books again together.
Fast forward to present day, Celena is a TV writer, journalist, and playwright with many accomplishments under her belt (see her bio below!). She is one of the most well-read, prolific writers I know. Her writing advice is super helpful. Enjoy!
