Jordan Ori is from NYC where she is a drama major at Professional Performing Arts High School. “Blond Dahlia” is her first story to be published, and she couldn’t be more thrilled. Jordan has been writing since the age of four when she illustrated her first book, based on Kay Thompson’s Eloise, in which she had her mom dictate her thoughts.
Jordan loves hanging out with diverse people and being creative. Along with acting and writing, she loves to sing and has a particular talent for science. She has appeared off-Broadway with Keen Teens originating two roles in the world premiere of Citizens United by Kate Cortesi, a satire based on the Supreme Court decision of the same name. Jordan began her activist career at age five writing to Sarah Palin to stop hunting wolves from helicopters. Since then she has attended the women’s marches, the NYC pride parades, rallies to close the camps on the southern border, and helped organize an anti-gun walkout at her former school. Jordan loves to travel and has been to Spain, Italy, France, Japan, Colombia, and Mexico. Her favorite TV shows are RuPaul’s Drag Race, Glee, and American Horror Story.
