About

Hi, I’m Britta Lundin. Here’s the tl;dr bio for those who want the info stat:

I’m a TV writer, and author. I’ve written for the shows Riverdale (CW) and Betty (HBO). I’m a longtime fanfiction reader and writer. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, I now live with my wife and dog and lemon trees in Los Angeles.

Here’s a longer bio in third person for those who need it for professional things or want to bask in the details:

Britta Lundin is a TV writer, author, and comic book writer. She currently writes on a forthcoming HBO show, and previously wrote on the hit CW show Riverdale. Her YA book Ship It (Freeform Books), about a gay teenage fanfiction writer, is described as “the book that fandom has been waiting for, and the lived-in, fleshed-out portrait it deserves.” A longtime fanfiction reader and writer herself, she is passionate about fan communities and shipping. Before becoming a writer, she worked as a political organizer for organizations such as MoveOn.org and a digital media producer for Geek & Sundry and Nerdist.  She studied Political Science from Reed College in Portland, Oregon, and has an MFA in Film Production from the University of Texas at Austin. When not writing, she spends her time reblogging memes, playing basketball badly, practicing the rubik’s cube, and analyzing the work of One Direction and its members. Originally from a small town on the Oregon coast, she now lives in Los Angeles with her wife and dog.
