Lindsay Roth started her career as a radio producer for the nationally broadcast WOR 710am at age 16, having been bitten by the entertainment bug early and eagerly.

Before making her way into television she took a leap of faith when offered a position in the cosmetics industry under a leading cosmetics CEO.

Lindsay is currently in production and development for Carlos Slim and Larry King's Ora TV and Stick Figure Studios in NYC, where she produces and sells both linear and digital television shows. Some of her current shows include: "Larry King Now," and Emmy nominated Haylie Duff's "Real Girl's Kitchen" (which she created for Ora and Cooking Channel) and "Queen Bee."

She graduated from Northwestern University's School of Speech and Medill School of Journalism.  What Pretty Girls Are Made Of is Lindsay's first novel.

Q&A

Q. FAVORITE JOB

A. I love being a TV producer - it's creative, strategic, challenging, exciting and every day is different!

Q. HIGH SCHOOL AND/OR COLLEGE

A. Friends Academy School in Locust Valley, New York and Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

Q. FAVORITE MOVIE

A. "Favorite" is always tough for me - I rarely have one absolute favorite of anything! In the past few years, I just adored the movie "The Intouchables." It's a charming, touching, funny, clever and beautiful French movie that will have you laughing, crying, wishing for more. I sound like an advertisement, but could watch this flick over and over.

Q. FAVORITE TELEVISION SHOW

A. I'm currently obsessed with Downton Abbey

ON BOOKS AND WRITING

Q. IS THERE A BOOK YOU LOVE TO REREAD?

A. I can now safely say that there is no book I've read more times than the one I've written - who knew I'd have to read it so many times before it even goes to market!

Q. DO YOU HAVE ONE SENTENCE OF ADVICE FOR NEW WRITERS?

A. You can plan and think and prepare and dream, but if you want to be a writer, you have to write!
