I'm Malina, a writer and editor in Los Angeles.

Detroit is my hometown but I’ve lived in many exotic places such as Toledo and a senior citizen community in Florida.

I’m not an expert on anything. I’m not a brand or a product. What I am is an average, 30-ish woman with (mostly) normal problems and a lot of opinions. Sometimes I'm funny.

I've written essays and editorial pieces for a variety of magazines and websites, some highlights of which you can check out here.

Currently, I'm writing a book. It's gonna be a gas.
