BIO + CONTACT
BB Easton never intended to become an author. In fact, she was a full-time school psychologist and new mom when inspiration struck.
To keep herself awake during late night feedings with her second baby, BB began reading ebooks on her phone in the dark. She devoured every comedic memoir by David Sedaris, Jenny Lawson, Ally Brosh, and Chelsea Handler before her mother bashfully handed her Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James. It was BB's first romance novel, and like any good drug, she was hooked. After tearing through the entire series in a few days, she fell down the romance rabbit hole until she stumbled upon a glorious subgenre called "bad-boy romance."
BB realized that she KNEW the men she was reading about. The tattoo artist, the motorcycle club outlaw, the underground street racer, the rock star...she had DATED them. ALL OF THEM.
So BB began writing down her own stories about these guys - wild, ridiculous stories from her past as a rebellious, purple-haired punk rocker - just for fun. No one was supposed to read them. CERTAINLY NOT HER HUSBAND. But that's exactly what happened. BB discovered that her straight-laced, NOT-tattooed, NOT-bad-in-any-way-shape-or-form husband had been reading her sexy ex-boyfriend journal, and from that day on, her life would never be the same. She took the events that followed and turned them into her hilarious, heart-warming, hot-as-hell romantic comedy: 44 Chapters About 4 Men: A Memoir!
Within weeks, 44 Chapters About 4 Men: A Memoir hit the Amazon Top 100 Bestseller list, received a glowing review from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, and was optioned by producer J. Miles Dale, who would go on to win a Best Picture Academy Award for The Shape of Water. 44 Chapters also won the After Dark Book Lovers Shortie Award for Best Debut of 2016. The book was so successful, and BB's desire to keep writing was so strong, that she quit her stressful job, dyed her hair pink, and kept going, giving each of the four men in 44 Chapters About 4 Men his own book: SKIN, SPEED, STAR, and SUIT. You can binge-read (or listen) to the entire series here.
AND SOON you'll be able to watch it on your living room big screen!
44 Chapters About 4 Men is the inspiration for Sex/Life, a steamy, female-centered dramedy series coming to Netflix on June 25, 2021!
Sex/Life is female-centered in every way. Not only does the series focus on the identity crisis of party girl turned suburban housewife, Billie Mann (inspired by BB), but it also has a female showrunner, all female directors, a mostly female writing staff, and a mostly female crew! The first season will hit Netflix on June 25, 2021 with the incredibly talented Sarah Shahi playing Billie, Mike Vogel playing Cooper (inspired by BB's husband, Ken), Margaret O'dette playing Sasha (inspired by BB's bestie, Sara Snow), and Adam Demos playing Brad, the bad boy ex who crashes back into Billie's perfectly manicured life and makes her question EVERYTHING.
Once the 44 Chapters spin-off series was complete, BB wrote her first work of fiction—a gritty, emotional, dystopian love story that takes place in a small town before, during, and after a mysterious apocalyptic event. BB typed "The End" on The Rain Trilogy in 2019, then 2020 hit and all of her apocalyptic plot points started coming true. If you need her, she'll be busy writing a feel-good utopian rom-com to see if that fixes everything.
