Her books  have received dozens of awards and  accolades and regularly appear on the  lists for best novels of the year.  Kristan    is also a cohost of the Crappy Friends podcast, which discusses the  often complex dynamics of female  friendships, with her friend and fellow  writer, Joss Dey. Kristan lives in  Connecticut with her husband.

Marilyn Simon Rothstein is the author of Lift and Separate, winner of the Star Award presented by the Women’s Fiction Writers Association for Outstanding Debut. Husbands And Other Sharp Objects is her second novel.  Marilyn grew up in New York City, earned a degree in journalism from New York University, began her writing career at Seventeen magazine, married a man she met in an elevator, and owned an advertising agency for more than twenty-five years.
