About Me

HWR_author1Heather Wood Rudúlph was born in Los Angeles, grew up in Sacramento, and divided her adult life between New York City and Los Angeles, sometimes chasing her dreams, but mostly working on her career as a journalist. In her 14 years as a professional writer, she’s covered red-carpet fashion, teen dieting extremes, the beauty industrial complex, and the unreasonable insanity of parenting. Her work has been published in The Sacramento BeeThe Huffington PostThe Daily BeastRollingStone.com, and Salon. In 2005 she co-founded an online women’s magazine, now called sexyfeminist.com, and in doing so found her personal and professional identity—and got a book deal. Sexy Feminism: A Girl’s Guide to Love, Succes, and Style (with Jennifer Keishin Armstrong), was published in March 2013 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. She is an Adjunct Professor of Journalism at American River College, teaches online writing for the Gotham Writers’ Workshop, and is a mentor for the Afghan Women’s Writing Project. She lives in Sacramento with her husband and son.
