Nora Zelevansky is an author, journalist, editor and brand writer/consultant.
As a freelance writer, she covers all things lifestyle, particularly travel, fashion, wellness/beauty and unusual cultural trends. Her work has appeared in publications including The New York Times, ELLE, Vanity Fair, Town & Country, Travel + Leisure, The Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, Salon.com, The Daily Beast and The Washington Post. She is the editorial director for style-driven wellness hub, Live The Process.
Zelevansky's novels are delayed coming-of-age stories. Inspired by the universal struggle to let go of the past and reimagine oneself again and again, the books — infused with honesty, humor and a bit of romance — follow characters who resist change as they navigate periods of grudging transition: college graduation, the approach to 30, grief and acceptance.
Zelevansky attended New York City’s Calhoun School, then Scripps College of The Claremont Colleges in California. After graduation, she moved to LA to work in film and then in politics, before transitioning into freelance writing.
She lives in Brooklyn, NYC with her husband, two kids and enormous cat, Waldo.
