In November 2015 Focus Features is releasing an adaptation of The Danish Girl starring Academy Award-winner Eddie Redmayne and directed by the Academy Award-winning director of The King’s Speech, Tom Hooper. The 19th Wife was made into a television movie that continues to air around the world. I’ve appeared on Out Magazine‘s annual Out 100 list of influential LGBT people twice. My books have been translated into twenty languages and honored by the the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Lambda Literary Foundation, and the American Library Association. I’ve taught writing at Princeton, NYU, and Columbia and I’m currently Vice President and Executive Editor at Random House. As you probably can tell, stories are my life.
