About the author (1991)

Born in Beverly Hills, Calif., in 1955, Amy Ephron is the author of such popular novels as Cool Shades, Bruised Fruit, and Biodegradable Soap that primarily take as their subject the upscale, trendy Los Angeles lifestyle. She has also written A Cup of Tea, which is based on a short story by Katherine Mansfield. In a departure from her other fiction, this is a historical novel, set in New York City at the time of World War I. Ephron has worked as a reporter for Scanlon's Monthly and as a production vice president at Columbia Pictures. She has also been a screenwriter, most notably for the film A Little Princess. She is a founding editor of L.A. Style, a contributing editor of Buzz, and a contributor to National Lampoon, Realist, and L.A. Times Magazine. Writing runs in Amy Ephron's family: her parents are both screenwriters, and her sisters, Delia and Nora, are also authors.
