C. Moon Reed

C. Moon Reed never meant to make Las Vegas her home, but she found a kindred spirit in this upstart town. From trolling red carpets for celebrity gossip to writing in-depth feature stories and slightly self-indulgent personal essays, Reed has explored the kitschy yet endearing pioneer spirit of the Silver State. She is a staff writer for the Las Vegas Weekly. Follow her on Twitter @cmoonreed and at Facebook.com/cmoonreed.
