A Little More About Me:
Elisabeth Ovesen is the three-time New York Times bestselling author behind the Karrine Steffans pen name and literary brand, with books published by media giants HarperCollins Publishers and Hachette Book Group, USA. Elisabeth and her books have been featured on shows hosted by Paula Zahn, Donny Deutsch, Bill O’Reilly, Geraldo Rivera, Kathy Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, and Oprah Winfrey. Featured internationally in countless magazines and newspapers, Elisabeth’s Karrine Steffans persona and books shocked the world, forcing a conversation about the sexual deviances of the entertainment industry fifteen years before the ‘Me Too Movement.’
Since 2006, Elisabeth has served as a keynote speaker and workshop leader at notable colleges across the country, including California State and Dillard Universities. The following year, she proudly contributed satirical on-air content for HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher. From 2009 to 2015, Elisabeth worked as a speculative teleplay writer for Fox Television Studios, reporting directly to then studio President David Madden. The studio also optioned the film rights to all of the Karrine Steffans memoirs during that time.
Between 2013 and the present day, Elisabeth has mentored and coached over 170,000 women through her now-shuttered online personal development platform, The Gorgeous Girl’s Guide, and her Performance and Self-Mastery Coaching firm. In 2015, after completing her original ten-year plan, Elisabeth retired the Karrine Steffans pen name and from book publishing. Six years later, Elisabeth returns with essays and bi-monthly sex, love, relationship columns at LEVEL and ZORA, Medium Publications.
The author currently straddles both coasts while working on her next book, Men Love Sluts.
