Bobbi Dempsey started her journalism career covering small-town corruption for a daily newspaper, where she also created several popular series. She eventually moved on to freelance writing. For a while, she specialized in interviewing celebrities, CEOs and other high-profile people. One highlight was earning a byline in the NY Times for an interview conducted not far from the housing projects of her childhood.
These days, she frequently writes about personal finance and loves helping people become savvy consumers and discover new ways to save money. She is particularly focused on the challenges faced by blue collar families and working class parents, especially paying for college. To share information and advice for this audience, she has created a website called BrokeParents.com
Bobbi hopes to someday move to a secluded beach bungalow where she cannot be reached by email, IM or cell phone - but yet can still get a satellite signal to sustain her addiction to bad reality TV. There, with an endless loop of 80s music blasting in the background, she will finally finish the young adult novels she's been secretly working on.
