about kaye


Portrait by Jenn St-Onge.


Hello! I am a writer. I write essays, cultural criticism and analysis, and novels about teen girls in love, and teen girls who are best friends, and teen girls who are in love with their best friends. Sometimes there are boys also, I guess. Sometimes there are demons. There’s always a little bit of magic.

I’ve worked at BuzzFeed (as a little bit of everything for four years, from Social Web Writer to Senior Manager, Branded Content), GoldieBlox (as a Community Manager), and Upworthy (as one half of the Audience Development team). I still remember when Neopets was new and I’ve been on Tumblr for so long I have a regular fandom URL without any numbers or random punctuation.

When I’m not writing, I’m hanging out with my cat Robot, reading anything and everything I can get my hands on, and watching TV shows I really should’ve seen by now.
