I’m an award-winning LA Times staff writer who covers books and authors and publishing; I write daily at our book blog, Jacket Copy, and on Tuesday mornings I frequently get to interview authors via live video chat. That’s 10am, our time.
Currently I’m on the board of the National Book Critics Circle. I live in Los Angeles and have a cabin in Joshua Tree. The best way to contact me is by email at carolyn [dot] kellogg [at] latimes.com.
Previously I have: consulted for The Getty, been editor of LAist, was web editor at the public radio show Marketplace, worked for a literary agent and on the drivethru at McDonald’s (not in that order).
In 2004 I had an internet radio show that was part music, part books. In an effort to record what was happening there — real live authors came and talked to me! And played music they liked! — I started a blog, and then a podcast, both called Pinky’s Paperhaus, which for a long time was the name of my blog. I blog so much for the LA Times that I don’t maintain a personal blog anymore, at least not right now. Instead I can be found on Twitter and Tumblr and Flickr and Pinterest and Facebook and
