Ethlie Ann Vare
Author, Journalist, Screenwriter
Author, Screenwriter, Lecturer, Playwright
After working her way through college as a DJ (the radio kind, not the club kind), Ethlie Ann Vare became a rock music journalist, corresponding for publications like Billboard, Daily Variety and the Hollywood Reporter and editing the seminal ROCK Magazine. She also appeared on camera as a pop culture reporter on E! Entertainment Television. She then went on to scripted television, writing and producing shows including CSI, Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda, Dick Wolf’s Players, Silk Stalkings and Renegade.
In print, Ethlie started off writing biographies of pop culture figures from Frank Sinatra to Ozzy Osbourne, and then co-authored the award-winning pop histories MOTHERS OF INVENTION: From the Bra to the Bomb, Forgotten Women and Their Unforgettable Ideas and PATENTLY FEMALE: From AZT to TV Dinners, Women Inventors and Their Breakthrough Ideas. Her last book was LOVE ADDICT: Sex, Romance and Other Dangerous Drugs, a funny and revelatory volume about addiction and recovery based on her popular blog Affection Deficit Disorder.
Her latest book is a total departure: WOOF!, a picture book for kids that tells the touching story of a girl and her dog. Or maybe he’s a wolf. He thinks so.
