The Lovely Lynn Harris

Lynn Harris
Alter Ego

Lynn Harris, co-creator of Breakup Girl, is communications director for the global human rights organization Breakthrough. She is also author of the comic novel Death By Chick Lit, dubbed "brilliant" by New York Magazine, and its prequel, Miss Media. She is a (retired) award-winning journalist, essayist, and media commentator on gender, relationships, politics, and culture high and low. Her other books include Breakup Girl to the Rescue! A Superhero's Guide to Love, and Lack Thereof and He Loved Me, He Loves Me Not, wherein Breakup Girl made her debut.

Lynn was co-writer of (and the voice of our heroine in) the Breakup Girl animated television series and co-writer and star of Breakup Girl LIVE, Gotham Comedy Club's longest running variety show.

Formerly a contributing writer for Salon.com and a contributing editor at Glamour, Lynn also wrote frequently for Nerve.com, The New York Times, New York Magazine, The Washington Post, and many others. She has appeared on Good Morning America, Today, ABC News, CNN, Queen Latifah, Montel Williams, Lifetime, and numerous other talk and radio shows throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Lynn performed standup comedy in New York and elsewhere for ten years. Her July 2002 Off-Broadway two-woman show Lynn Harris on Ice, co-starring Betsy Fast, played to sellout crowds.

Lynn is now happily married, which equips her all the better to serve you.

The Charming Chris Kalb

Chris Kalb
Cartoonist / Designer / Animator

Chris Kalb co-created Breakup Girl, when he illustrated and designed Lynn Harris' He Loved Me, He Loves Me Not. Chris did similar duties on Tray Gourmet: Be Your Own Chef in the College Cafeteria (Lake Isle Press), which Lynn wrote with well-adjusted ex-boyfriend Larry Berger. Chris' illustrations also appear in 'Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy and Other Misheard Lyrics by Gavin Edwards (Fireside), and Up Your [SAT] Score (Workman), among others.

His newest book Cooking Rocks! Rachel Ray's 30-Minute Meals For Kids was a New York Times Bestseller among children's chapter books.

On the web, Chris has designed for Sci Fi Channel, Nike, Drug Strategies, and Graphitti Designs. He's done his best work, though, for himself: a series of pages about 1930s pulp heroes, including Doc Savage (a Cool Site of the Day), and The Spider (Flash! QuickTime! QTVR!). Wired Magazine said that his Spider Kit "unites the best of interactive technology, American pop culture, and our own childhood dream worlds." More years ago than he cares to mention, Chris' comic strip in the Yale Daily News won him Scripps-Howard's Charles M. Schulz Award for the nation's most promising college cartoonist.

Post-Oxygen, Chris has been getting plenty of sleep. (Finally!) And he has happily retreated to Old Media -- as the Art Director of Sci Fi magazine.

The Deft Colin Lingle

Colin Lingle
Senior Producer

BG's former senior producer and editor, Colin Lingle, is still trying to save the world, though now from the friendly confines of the ivory tower (which is no longer ivory, of course, and hasn't been a tower for ages). As a doctoral student in Communication at the University of Washington, he's trying to figure out what we talk about when we talk about politics, technology, the environment and popular culture. Occasionally, stray thoughts about such things appear on his blog, Big Ink. He thinks he probably enjoys hiking, kayaking and long walks on the beach, but as a grad student, he can't really remember. He loves Seattle, misses New York and flirts with San Francisco. As always, he keeps his Team BG decoder ring in perfect working condition.

The Indispensible Betsy Fast

Betsy Fast
Breakup Girl Friday

You'll remember Betsy as BG's online and onstage sidekick, Breakup Girl Friday. No longer kicking anyone's side, she's now Editor in Chief of TWIST, a magazine for teens. Tune into E! and VH1 and spot her discussing important topics such as how much celebrities spend on themselves and why we care. (The E! True Hollywood Story: Britney and Kevin is a must-see.) Betsy's been racing triathlons for five years and is currently training for the Disney Half-Ironman in May. (Want to sponsor her bike shorts? It's for a good cause!) When she's not swimming, biking, running or hanging out with her pals from TeamBG, Betsy's at home making out with the world's greatest mutt, Cheese. (Miss Cheese Louise if you're nasty.)

The Extrodinary Mike Lee

Mike Lee

Mike has recently done animation for SciFi.com's Chi-Chian and Tremors properties. He published his first comic book in Baltimore at the age of 11. After studying biology and art at Yale, he moved to New York and became a temp. He continues his studies at the Parsons School of Design and The School of Visual Arts, and has illustrated for Alloy, A. Magazine, Penguin Putnam, MTV, and Nickelodeon. A guy he met in line for Star Wars tickets got him his first job as an animator.

Paul Sullivan
Paul the Intern

Paul is a stand up comic, filmmaker and television producer now living outside of San Francisco. He has appeared on HBO Sports' Curse of the Bambino and Reverse the Curse of the Bambino as well as on Trio TV and on Monk. He has been a producer for the Daily Show with Jon Stewart as well as Nick@Nite and Animal Planet. Currently he is producing a show for public television at KQED TV, San Francisco. The trailer for his first feature film, First Time Caller, can be found at www.firsttimecaller.com. Unlike his Breakup Girl alter ego, Paul has found love and marriage and is the proud father of twin boys.

Greg Young

Like Brad Pitt, Gregory Young is a refugee of Springfield, Mo, the "Queen City Of The Ozarks." Like Brad Pitt, he studied journalism at the University Of Missouri -Columbia. Unlike Brad Pitt, he graduated. After moving to New York to intern for Entertainment Weekly, he wove himself into the fabric of New York culture and nightlife; he's now the the theater critic for HX Magazine, a paper-pusher for BMG, and a deejay at Bar Below in Brooklyn.

Belleruth Naparstek
Breakupgirl.net Psychotherapist-in-Residence/ Someone Else's Mom

BG consulted Belleruth Naparstek whenever a letter seemed to present a particularly knotty psychological concern. Belleruth is author of Staying Well with Guided Imagery and Your Sixth Sense and creator of the Health Journeys guided imagery audio series, over 42 titles in all, geared to helping with various physical and emotional issues. Her most recent book is Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How They Heal. (Please do not send correspondence intended for BG to Belleruth. Thanks.)
