Iva-Marie Palmer

Sometimes, I have really earnest conversations with the Magic 8-Ball.


Iva-Marie Palmer lives just outside Los Angeles, California with three very loveable carriers of the Y chromosome. She writes a bunch about a lot of different stuff, sometimes even things she made up (see books The End of the World as We Know It and The Summers.)

Fun Facts

  • The amount of coffee I drink in a day:

    Whatever’s available. It seems to have no effect on my ability to stay awake any longer so I can only pray it’s hydrating.

  • The one piece of advice I’d give to a new parent:

    No matter what you do, or how you do it, your kids will hate you for something someday, so try not to beat yourself up. Also, just say no to Calliou.

  • My guilty pleasure:

    I feel no guilt for pleasures.
