[[AwesomeMcCoolname Diablo Cody]] (real name Brook Busey) is a former stripper, screenwriter, writer, author, and blogger.

A big, big fan of SophisticatedAsHell.

She's also somewhat [[{{LoveItOrHateIt}} polarizing]] (no pun intended), though general consensus seems to be in favor of her work. She is currently at work on a movie adaptation of ''Literature/SweetValleyHigh''.

'''Her works:'''
* Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper (her memoir, published 2006). Good example of MyGirlIsASlut and GoodBadGirl tropes.
* ''{{Film/Juno}}'' (2007)
* ''UnitedStatesOfTara'' (2009-2011)
* ''Film/JennifersBody'' (2009)
* ''Film/YoungAdult'' (2011)
