New York Times Bestselling Author Jennette McCurdy has been showcasing her multitude of talents for over 20 years, with more than 100 credits under her belt between film and TV. Most recently, Jennette
has chronicled the unflinching details surrounding her life and rise to
fame in her newly released memoir I’m Glad My Mom Died. In the inspiring book of resilience and independence, Jennette uses candor and dark humor as she dives into her struggles as a former child actor—including eating disorders, addiction, and a complicated relationship with her overbearing mother—and how she retook control of her life.

Having rose to fame at a young age, Jennette starred in two of Nickelodeon's biggest shows, iCarly and the spinoff Sam & Cat. Once she graduated from those shows, she quickly broke into much more adult roles, playing the lead in the dark and edgy Netflix mystery series Between and R-rated Hulu comedy Little Bitches. 

In addition to her impressive acting resume, Jennette is an accomplished creator. Her darkly comedic one-woman show I’m Glad My Mom Died, which she wrote, directed, and stars in, had a sold-out run at Lyric Hyperion Theatre. She has also been published in the Huffington Post and the Wall Street Journal, and hosts a popular podcast, Empty Inside, where she speaks with guests about uncomfortable topics in the hopes of making those conversations less taboo, all while learning and growing along the way.
