Marisa Knudsen is the best-smelling author of several snarky letters to the customer service departments of many retail stores. She lives and works in Chicago, where she enjoys a luxurious lifestyle filled with indoor plumbing and Lean Cuisine dinners.
She enjoys buying shoes she'll never wear, chewing her fingernails, and waking up just in time to enjoy a Sunday afternoon. Other pasttimes include the utterly hopeless pursuit of cheering on the Chicago Bears to a Superbowl victory, listening to country music from the nineties, collecting rubber ducks, reorganizing the bedroom closet, and attending annual dentist appointments.
Knudsen is pursuing her Masters of Business Administration at DePaul University in Chicago. She graduated with a Bachelors of Science from Northern Illinois University (DeKalb, IL) in 2008, where she was a member of Delta Zeta as well as a staff reporter and columnist for the Northern Star, the university's daily newspaper.
Knudsen has been through much throughout her life, overcoming a Diet Mountain Dew addiction in early 2010 and surviving a terrible migraine in 2007. Despite these setbacks, she hopes to continue writing, but no one is holding their breath.
