About Stephanie Klein

A foodie who sometimes abuses hair-care products, Stephanie Klein is an acclaimed writer and photographer with a cultlike following. She is one of the Internet's most popular icons, with stephanieklein.com being featured on the cover of the New York Times Sunday Styles section, where she was named amongst "the top 1 percent of all bloggers." Klein's photography furnishes New York's Hotel Gansevoort. Her rise has been chronicled everywhere from 20/20 to the TV Food Network, and her wildly popular first memoir, Straight Up and Dirty, is currently in development as a half-hour comedy series for ABC. While she enjoys living in Austin, Texas, with her husband and twin son and daughter, she'll always be a New Yorker.
