Full Bio


Alexandra Robbins, a literary phenom who has been called the spokesperson for her generation, has landed on the New York Times bestseller lists with multiple books.

Hailed by the press as “an excellent stylist and a first-rate mind,” “a media celebrity,” and “a bold new voice,” Robbins has developed a riveting signature style of investigative journalism that reads like a fast-paced work of fiction.  Her five books include The Overachievers: The Secret Lives of Driven Kids; Pledged: The Secret Life of Sororities, a gripping account of sorority life that propelled her to household-name status at universities nationwide; Secrets of the Tomb: Skull and Bones, the Ivy League, and the Hidden Paths of Power, the definitive book on the super-elite secret society to which both George W. Bush and John Kerry belong; and Conquering Your Quarterlife Crisis,  the go-to guide for young adults in their late teens through late 30s, the follow-up to Quarterlife Crisis.

Robbins regularly appears on national television, including shows such as 60 Minutes, The Today Show, Oprah, The Colbert Report, and The View.  Since graduating from college in 1998, she has written for several publications, such as Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, USA Today, Cosmopolitan, and The Washington Post.

An award-winning speaker who lectures frequently at universities and conferences, Robbins also does consumer brand consulting, particularly about the adolescent and twentysomething age groups.  In her spare time, she plays on several soccer teams, watches NFL games, bakes pies, and re-watches the original Star Wars trilogy and early Steve Martin movies.
