Hi, I’m Catherine Baab-Muguira, author of Poe for Your Problems. Ask me anything about Edgar Allan Poe—his weird work or his even weirder life.
I’m a writer and journalist who has contributed to, among others, Slate, Quartz, CNBC and NBC News, as well as appeared on NPR and a host of podcasts. My nonfiction debut, Poe for Your Problems: Uncommon Advice from History’s Least Likely Self-Help Guru, just came out from Running Press/Hachette. It grew out of a popular series on Poe that I wrote for The Millions, including the viral essay, “Edgar Allan Poe Was a Broke-Ass Freelancer.”
