Natalie Standiford Biography
Natalie Standiford is the author of the Dating Game series as well as the young adult novel, How to Say Goodbye in Robot, which "has all the makings of a cult hit," according to Kirkus Reviews.
Born in Baltimore, Natalie moved to New York City after she graduated from college. "I wanted to be a writer," she says, "but I wasn't sure how to do that, so I took a job in publishing, which turned out to be a good idea." She worked first as an editorial assistant and then as an assistant editor, in Random House's Children's Book division. "It was the perfect apprenticeship for me," Natalie says. However, she wanted to be a writer and not an editor, so she quit. She wrote picture books, chapter books, and easy readers, before entering the teen market.
Natalie is also a musician. She plays bass in the mostly-female rock band Ruffian. She also plays bass in the band Tiger Beat, which is comprised of fellow young adult authors Daniel Ehrenhaft, Libby Bray, and Barnabas Miller.
