She has appeared on Dr. Phil and Good Morning America, and has had her essays featured in The New York Times Modern Love series and The Washington Post. She has a psychotherapy practice and lives with her family in Portland, OR. Tyler Cohen is a cartoonist who uses autobiography and surrealism to explore parenthood and female experience in her book Primahood: Magenta. Her work has been published in the Ignatz-award winning anthology, Qu33r, The Feminist Utopia Project, What's Your Sign, Girl? and online at One of the ways this book offers healing is through Cohen's collaboration with the illustrator, her older sister Tyler. During "an ugly divorce, fraught with affairs and devastation and anger," their mother chose the older sister as her ally and confidante, leaving a breach between the two sisters that they wouldn't repair until adulthood. Her sister was her first true female friend and the first betrayal (of many). A brief, canny book that will make any girl who feels alone feel less alone.KIRKUS REVIEWS
