Brianne Hogan

I’m Brianne, a Canadian Capricorn, and freelance contributor for Scary Mommy.

My writing has appeared in over 50 online publications, including The Washington Post, the BBC, Elle Canada, and BuzzFeed. I’m also the author of two books published with Adams Media and Running Press, respectively.

I have a black cat named Olive and six plants named after the Friends characters — that is, if I don’t kill them soon. The plants, not the cat. Although she probably would deserve it. (just kidding — she’s my world!)
