I'm a serial bridesmaid, amateur ukulele player, and dessert addict living in western New York.

My first novel, Borrow-A-Bridesmaid, was partially inspired by my experiences bridesmaiding throughout my 20s. In total, I've been a bridesmaid 10 times, in 6 different states (and England!). In the book, my main character is paid to be a stand-in bridesmaid. Just to clarify, none of my friends hired me, unless you count chocolate fountains and delicious gourmet food as payment...

When I'm not writing, I'm watching too much Netflix or reading.

I think one of the best ways to stay motivated/encouraged is to join a writing group. I am lucky to be part of an amazing group where we encourage each other and share what we're working on for constructive feedback. There's also a lot of delicious food involved, which helps. :) And we give each other glittery stickers. It's the little things... Being a writer is definitely a challenge. I rely on them a lot to keep me going. Whatever you do, don't give up!(less)

“I imagine the field day we’d have with this in gender studies class. Our desks in a circle, we’d huddle forward and rant: So this is the baseline of femininity. The place where being bestowed certain chromosomes will ultimately take you. This is the dream that’s been pounded into us. Find the guy. Find the dress. Or hell, maybe the other way around. The Disney Princesses told us so. But this isn’t college. This is my job.”
Anne Wagener, Borrow-A-Bridesmaid

“A bemused smile appears on his face. “We’re all lost in the woods.” “You’re being deep, aren’t you? I don’t follow.” “Philosophically speaking. Human existence is irrational, absurd, and we have no objective guidelines. No life manual. We’re all lost in a deep, tangled wood where there’s no clear path.” “Yeah. This isn’t helping.” He lifts a finger. “There is hope, my bookselling friend. We can blaze our own path through the trees. Embrace the absurdity. Do your best to live a life of meaning in an uncaring, absurd universe.”
Anne Wagener, Borrow-A-Bridesmaid
