Back in early 2005, ChickLitGurrl: high on LATTES & WRITING was the blog for the original CLG, author Shonell Bacon. For the first few months of the blog's existence, Shonell wrote about her goings on in the world and her journey as a writer. Soon, her need to connect with other women writers moved the mission of the blog from Shonell's personal life to interviews with women writers from all walks of literary life. Since her very first interview with New York Times Best Selling author Carly Phillips, Shonell has interviewed over 140 authors in seven years and has featured and reviewed many more authors and books, respectively.
