Hi, I’m Britta Lundin. Here’s the tl;dr bio for those who want the info stat:
I’m a TV writer, novelist, and comic book writer. I currently write on the show Riverdale on the CW. I’m a longtime fanfiction reader and writer, and can track my life milestones by what I was shipping at the time. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, I now live with my wife and our lime tree 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 the hit CW show Riverdale. Her YA book SHIP IT (out May 1, 2018 from 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 still passionate about fan communities and shipping. She was one of a two-person team who made the viral feminist web series A Series of Comebacks, featured in BuzzFeed and Upworthy, among others. 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 earned a BA in Political Science from Reed College in Portland, Oregon, and an MFA in Film Production from the University of Texas at Austin. When not writing, she spends her time reblogging memes 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.
