Jill Kargman is a writer based in New York City who is deathly afraid of clowns. And mimes. After graduating college, she worked as a Xerox whore at the bottom of the magazine totem pole, where she took copious notes on the (psycho) characters she worked for. Post dues-paying era of languishing in the trenches of assistant life, she and her writing partner, Carrie Karasyov, wrote the 2000 Sundance film “Intern” about their struggles. Their two subsequent novels, The Right Address and Wolves In Chic Clothing were national bestsellers and published in eight languages. The film rights to Wolves have been optioned. The duo also wrote a young adult book, Bittersweet Sixteen for HarperCollins US, which was followed in 2007 by Summer Intern.
Jill’s freelance work includes over ten shows for MTV, including episodes of MTV: Ultrasound and So Five Minutes Ago. She has written over a hundred articles that have appeared in magazines including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview, Town & Country, GQ, Elle, Teen Vogue, style.com and Travel Leisure. Her new solo novel, Momzillas, is a dark comedy about a scary sect of Type A competitive yummy mummies on New York’s Upper East Side. Jill and Carrie are currently working on their next co-authored book.
