First thing she consumes every single morning: Toasted sesame bagel with vegetable cream cheese

How she stays fit: By chasing after her 14-month and 4-month old sons. "I never stop going, going, going."

Wearing: "Sable vest, which I had made from one of my grandmother's fur coats--I had it lined with cashmere for the ultimate luxury; Earnest Sewn jeans, Petit Bateau turtleneck, Frye boots, Chanel bangles."

When she knew she wanted to be an author: "I've wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. I love telling stories."

If she weren't an author, what she'd like to be: A television correspondent

Other authors she admires: Jennifer Weiner, Emily Giffin, Jane Green

What inspires her most: "The people who've told me it's 'not possible.' And my family."

Advice she'd give to anyone entering her field: "Write what you're passionate about. Develop a thick skin and never give up. Ever. Closed doors are meant to be kicked in."

Wardrobe essentials: Petit Bateau white t-shirts, skinny jeans, cashmere sweaters, black leggings, and Cosabella thongs

Favorite item in her closet: Sheared rabbit jacket she re-styled from her grandmother's knee-length swing coat and lined with a vibrant butterfly pattern

What she'd never be caught dead wearing: Crocs, shoulder pads, and pantyhose

Worth the splurge: Black lizard Manolo Blahniks

Cheap thrill: Crumbs cupcakes. "The tops only--it's all about the icing."

Beauty must-haves: Sisley Sun Glow Gel, Benefit Benetint, Kiehl's Lip Balm and Maybelline Great Lash

Always in her bag: Business cards, Big Red gum, iPhone, Louis Vuitton wallet, Kleenex, Kiehl's Lip Balm, "and roughly 100 pens."

Book that's bedside now: An unpublished manuscript she's reading for a fellow author

Green efforts: "We just installed an amazing 'smart' heating system in our house that turns off appliances during down periods and controls temperatures in a way that's reduced our carbon footprint significantly and will continue to do so as it 'learns' the house."

Charities she supports: Boys & Girls Clubs, Doctors Without Borders, and Children's Hospitals
