Author of the hilarious memoir Be Pretty, Get Married, and Always Drink TaB, Washington Post special correspondent Gigi Anders and her parents were born Jewish in Havana, Cuba. The trio fled Castro's regime for the United States in 1961. After six months in Miami Beach, the family moved to Washington, D.C., where Gigi came of age and eventually turned to writing. She has written for Glamour, Allure, Mirabella, American Health for Women, USA Today's USA Weekend, American Journalism Review, Hispanic, Latina, and First for Women.


I chose to make [Elvis Cole] a private investigator because the private investigator is outside of the system. He has none of the power of even a simple patrol officer. And Elvis Cole being badgeless, without having the power of the system, I think he's more representative of us, of me and you. He's an ordinary guy.
