Sona Charaipotra is an entertainment and lifestyle writer based in New York City, where she lives with her professor husband and her empirically adorable daughter Kavya, who's two. When Sona is not interviewing A-listers or watching The Vampire Diaries (for work, of course!) around little Kavya's schedule (or lack thereof—gotta love that DVR), she's working on her first novel while earning her MFA in fiction. You can find her on the web at SonaCharaipotra.com.
