Hailing from Louisiana, Alexis Reliford is a magazine writer, editor and professional, movie-obsessed fangirl based in New York City.

Starting on the colorful pages of a Lisa Frank journal, she found her passion for writing at an early age reporting on the inner workings of elementary school. She then went on to earn a degree in Mass Communication from Northwestern State University of Louisiana. 

Her work has been featured in Good Housekeeping—where she currently works as the Assistant Features Editor—Health, ESSENCE, Ebony and more covering a wide range of topics, including pop culture, health, sex, pets, and food. Although, her main focus is the stories of women. She's interviewed female entrepreneurs, Oscar-winning actresses, doctors, chefs, and professional athletes.

When she's not on a deadline, working on her latest script (oh yeah, she wants to be a screenwriter too!) or searching for the city's best tacos, you can find her writing in third person, obsessing over the latest TV phenomenon (9/10 it's Grey's Anatomy) and blogging about over on her blog, Strong Female Lead
