Zoe grew up in Mobile, Alabama. As a wee one, she would walk home from school and talk to herself as she verbally mapped out Barbie and Kenâ€™s upcoming altercation(s) with Skipper. She loved homework and cleaning. She was wild!
Later, she attended Boston University, where she spent her time destroying her teeth with Swedish Fish and explaining to her peers that people actually did wear shoes in Alabama.
After college, she arrived in New York with nary a clue and an inflated sense of self-importance. Her first apartment was dubbed â€˜Wild Kingdomâ€™ because of her mouse, roach and pigeon roommates. She took a job in book publishing and, despite a brief foray into the world of web writing - touting luxury goods out of a beige office with bad carpeting in Chelsea and writing horoscopes based on planet formations from Iceland (best job ever, by the way) â€“ never looked back.
Today, Zoe is the Foreign Rights Director and an agent for The Nancy Yost Literary Agency. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, whom she met on the subway after four plus years of trying to get up the nerve to say hello to him.
