Aimee Lubin is a political affairs professional by day and a writer by night. A Philly native, the only conspiracy theory she believes is that Rocky is a real person. She counts Key West, good bath products, and vanilla coffee creamer as things she can't live without. She lives in Annapolis, MD with her husband, son and two extra large retriever lap dogs. If she goes missing, she's probably hiding behind a charcoal face mask, listening to a true crime podcast.
