American writer and journalist, she is the author of "Sex and the City," a book which was turned into a popular cable television series that began in 1998 and starred Sarah Jessica Parker.
Although she was an aspiring actress, she wrote for a magazine while she was an undergraduate at the University of New York. Her interests in life in the city, particularly for the young single crowd, were based on her own experiences. Instead of pursuing her acting career, she became a free-lance writer. She began her "Sex and the City" column for the New York Observer in 1994. In 1997 she published her first novel with the same name. It was followed by "Lipstick Jungle" in 2001 with other novels to follow.
She married Charles Askegard on July 4, 2002 in Nantucket, MA. He is 10 years her junior and a principal dancer for the New York City Ballet.
