About Nan Mooney

Nan was born and raised in Seattle, Washington, graduated from Scripps College, and has worked in both the film and publishing industries. Along the way, she’s held numerous other jobs including, but not confined to: actor, nanny, office temp, exerciser of polo ponies, caterer, fact-checker, and — most dangerous of all — floor demonstrator for an at-home waxing device.
NAN MOONEY is the author of I Can’t Believe She Did That: Why Women Betray Other Women at Work (St. Martin’s Press 2005) and My Racing Heart: The Passionate World of Thoroughbreds and the Track (HarperCollins 2002.) Her work has appeared in The Washington Post, Slate, The Daily News, The Utne Reader, The Seattle Weekly, Women’s eNews and various other publications.

She lives in Seattle with her son, Leo, and far too much rain.
