LEA GELLER, recipient of the 2019 Kathryn Gurfein Writing Fellowship at Sarah Lawrence College, lives in New York with her husband and five children, for whom she frequently wakes up and makes five separate breakfasts. Lea began her writing career by blogging about her adventures in the trenches of parenting and got the idea for her first novel, Trophy Life, when her two sons were in middle school. When Lea’s not writing and eavesdropping on her children, she can be found running, drinking diner coffee, and occasionally teaching middle-school English. She is a graduate of Columbia University and Stanford Law School. You can find Lea at www.leageller.com, Instagram (@leagellerauthor.com), Facebook (@leagellerauthor), and Twitter (@lrgeller).
