About Michelle Zaffino
Michelle Zaffino is a digital librarian and information architect in San Francisco, with over 10 years of content experience, including magazine and online publishing, writing, UX, content strategy and management, copywriting and editing. She worked in New York for several Hearst publications, and while managing the research department at Marie Claire, she wrote Does Your Man Need A Makeover?, which inspired tv’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. She recently completed her first teen novel, How Good It Can Be, a sequel, The Love Quad, a historical novel for teens, and is currently working on a series for young adults and a memoir.

Through the experience of writing 3 novels and earning a MLIS (3.825 final GPA), Michelle realized that whether your book is indie or traditionally published, book discovery is broken, so she learned to code, in order to build products to fix it. In the Stacks is her way of sharing good books with the readers who love them. As video continues to expand, so will the In the digital library, and the Librarian Brain was born out of our love for metadata.
