Kristin Newman - What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding

Saturday, September 20, 2014 - 1:00pm

Kristin Newman spent her 20s and 30s dealing with the stresses of her high-pressure job as a television comedy writer, and the anxieties of watching most of her friends get married and start families while she wrestled with her own fear of both. Not ready to settle down and yet loathe to become a sad-sack single girl, she instead started traveling the world, often alone, for a few months each year, falling madly in love with attractive locals who provided moments of the love she wanted without the cost of the freedom she needed.  What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding introduces readers to the Israeli bartenders, Argentinian priests, Finnish poker players, and sexy Bedouins who helped transform Newman into "Kristin-Adjacent" on the road—a quieter, less judgmental, and, yes, sluttier version of herself at home.

Kristin Newman is a television comedy writer, having earned credits on shows such as That 70s Show, How I Met Your Mother, Chuck. She currently writes for ABC's The Neighbors.
