Linda Keenan, who sold her book proposal to ABC, sets the record straight about life in the ’burbs.
Linda Erin Keenan is the author of the satire book Suburgatory, published by Globe Pequot Press. She invites readers to friend her on Facebook, especially the craziest ones with the most problems. Keenan spent seven years as a CNN senior producer/head writer for top anchors including Anderson Cooper, Aaron Brown, Willow Bay, Stuart Varney, and Lou Dobbs during 9/11, the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, the dot-com rise and fall, several key national elections, and the New York City blackout. It was 9/11 that pushed her to re-evaluate her 24-7 lifestyle, and she eventually traded it all in for baby and suburbia. Her first-person essays have appeared in The Boston Globe Magazine and The Huffington Post.
