I’m Pamela Redmond Satran, and I’m old enough to have written 17 books, including five novels (Younger, The Man I Should Have Married) and ten bestselling baby-naming books (Beyond Jennifer & Jason, Cool Names for Babies) coauthored with Linda Rosenkrantz. Linda and I are also the developers of a big new baby-naming site called nameberry. I also cowrite The Glamour List, write for The Daily Beast and The Huffington Post, and am the author of a book called 1000 Ways To Be A Slightly Better Woman.
I’ve been married since before most of my editors were born, and have three children: Rory, who’s an editor of the fashion magazine Self Service in Paris; Joe, who’s a junior at Yale; and Owen, who’s trying to do well enough in high school to go to college very far faway. I live in Montclair, NJ, where I founded a group of nearly 800 writers and editors called MEWS. For even more about me, go to my website.
