  • Zoe Margolis

    Zoe Margolis, also known as Abby Lee, is the author of Girl with a One Track Mind. The book is based on Zoe’s blog of the same name in which she revealed and discussed the details of her own sex life on-line.

    She says she decided to write about sex in her blog because she “felt that the feminist and female-centred perspective is missing from mainstream media. A sexist double-standard about male vs female sexuality still exists, and which chastises women if they express sexual wants and needs.

    The blog has had more than 7 million readers over the last six years and now averages 100000 hits per month.

    The book itself has sold over 165,000 copies of the UK edition, and has been translated into fifteen languages.

    Zoe’s, follow-up book Girl with a One Track Mind: Exposed is published in March.
