American of London is a blog that celebrates everything off-beat, weird, cult (though more Jim Henson than Jim Jones) and the stuff in between. Expect chats about horror films, deep thoughts about Meat Loaf and comic reviews.
Krista Culbertson is an American born and bred in the great cheese state of Wisconsin. She grew up learning the secret arts of binge drinking and polka dancing. She now lives with her husband in South London where they watch every episode of Orphan Black (twice) and struggle with the lack of space on the bookshelves.
She went to school for journalism at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and obtained her Masters at the University of Westminster, but for a living she reads children’s books (seriously).
When not reading books with top-notch fart jokes, she dedicates a majority of her time lusting over Limahl’s hair, wishing she could own her very own mogwai and boogieing with a suitcase.
