Personal Biography:

Stefanie Newell was born and raised in Chicago, IL. She graduated from DePaul University with a B.A. in Finance. While working in Corporate America in various roles, she gathered valuable experience and business skills that contributes to her success as CEO of Write One Publications, Inc.

Newell is best known for her novel The Buzz: When celebrity gossip goes wrong… The Buzz has been described as a humorous yet introspective look at the entertainment industry and its allure. The idea for The Buzz came while Newell was freelance writing for Unrated Magazine and her entertainment blog The Music Hot Spot. After observing the entertainment industry and lurking on various message boards and blogs over the years, Stefanie put pen to paper and brought to life the gossiping, Internet diva Ebony Jenkins.

Published by her company Write One Publications, Inc., The Buzz has created a buzz amongst book readers and fans of celebrity gossip. Newell has been featured by media outlets such as WCIU, Rolling Out,, and the Chicago Fox television show Raw TV.

Newell’s company also published the self-help book Pull Your Pants Up and be a man! by author Bernice Harris. Actor Malik Yoba (New York Undercover, Girlfriends, Why Did I Get Married?) dispenses practical knowledge and wisdom in the riveting foreword. The self-help book geared towards young men between the ages of thirteen and eighteen provides a nine-step approach to a goal-oriented life. Pull Your Pants Up was featured at the Father & Son’s Madison Square Garden event last year.

Newell recently released the eBooks Book Marketing Ideas For The Author and How To Find Beta Readers and is currently working on her second novel Rules of the Game.

Sample of Press Coverage:

“Breakout author Stefanie Newell serves up The Buzz on a hot platter for all who love gossip, Internet forums and spicy story lines. Newell’s novel is an interesting, thrilling, humorous experience that will have readers loving the story and hating the hell out of the main protagonist. The perfect anti-hero, Ebony’s a refreshing break from the normal sweet character. Her persona reeks of the all too familiar stank, hate filled online personalities seen on many well known gossip sites. This book is a definite must read for anyone who loves or hates the gossip circuit.” – J’Adore Magazine


“Stefanie Newell fully understands America’s growing obsession with celebrity chat. As the author of the novel, The Buzz: When Celebrity Gossip Goes Wrong, Newell delves into our fascination with the stars. The book revolves around the fictional story of Ebony, a successful black woman whose pursuit of the high life wreaks havoc.” – Rolling Out Magazine


“The Buzz” is a very enjoyable book. The plot grabs you, and then the interaction between the characters draws you in. The author gives us the background on each character in detail. This helps you understand each character’s personality and why they behave the way they do. This is what makes the book outstanding. “The Buzz” is a must read. Solid debut.” – OOSA Online Book Club
