She presently works at a law firm by day, but spends the rest of her time writing. She is the managing editor for the coup magazine and current events contributor for their blog site.

  1. btw, in the podcast, i make two slip-ups (made out of nervousness; carmen is intimidating!!!! lol) i want to correct for listeners:

    1. i say that commenters take a gander at an issue…i really meant took a stab at or took a guess…

    2. i say that mac is “intent” about using women of color in their ads…i really meant intentional…

    so, sorry about that! i hope that clears things up.
