Carla was raised in a sleepy New Jersey suburb that most people have never heard of. She had two imaginary friends as a child, one Backstreet Boys obsession as a preteen, and a car named Sasha as an actual teen (which she never crashed!).  She's done her fair share of world travel, she can kinda speak French, and she has issues with saying goodbye to her old books.  She is now a writer and publicity assistant in Brooklyn, New York, where she lives with her husband and tiny daughter.
