I’m a journalist and editor specializing in health and nutrition, and the author of the novels Life and Other Near-Death Experiences and The Art of Forgetting.

My work has appeared in dozens of publications and on websites including Allure, Arthritis Today, Forbes.com, Health, Men’s Health, O: The Oprah Magazine, Parade, SELF, Shape, WebMD.com and Women’s Health. I'm currently the health editor at Real Simple magazine.

Lake Union Publishing will publish my second novel, Life and Other Near-Death Experiences, in November 2015.

Library Journal called my debut novel, The Art of Forgetting, a “page-turner... [for] readers who enjoy intelligent novels about women's friendships,” and the Chicago Tribune said, “Pagán writes with both a subtle sense of humor and great wisdom about the power of friendship and the importance of forgiveness in her quietly compelling literary debut.”
