Julie Pennell is a full-time freelance writer. She is regular contributor to TODAY.com and other publications which have included Teen Vogue, InStyle, Refinery29, and The Nest. Her editorial career officially began over 10 years ago when she scored her dream job at Seventeen magazine right out of college. Since then, she has worked as a digital specialist for various brands at an agency and as an online editor for Alloy Entertainment at Warner Bros. In the summer of 2014, she decided to take a chance on a lifelong dream and left her office job to freelance and write her first novel, THE YOUNG WIVES CLUB. The book was ultimately published by Emily Bestler Books at Simon & Schuster in February 2017. She currently lives in Brooklyn with her husband.
