Actress Ally Sheedy, best known to some fans for her roles in 1980s films like The breakfast club and War gamesreturns to the screen in Freeform’s new comedy Drunk single woman. As vanity lounge reported is Sheedy’s return to the game after six years; For the past decade, she has taught in the theater department at the City College of New York and. . . working as a book publisher under a pseudonym:

Some of them know that it’s actually me working with them and their books, and a lot of them don’t.

This career move isn’t all that surprising – Sheedy wrote and published a collection of poetry, and Sheedy’s mother is literary agent Charlotte Sheedy – but it does raise the startling possibility that if you’re an author working with a publisher , your editor might secretly be Ally Sheedy. Yes, it wouldn’t need to change your existing working relationship, but, in the end, you might find it amusing to know that your editor might secretly be Ally Sheedy. We may never know Sheedy’s literary identity (unless an author sees this tidbit and many puzzle pieces snap into place); instead, while you watch Drunk single woman, you can speculate on the vibe of its editor. (Although that doesn’t matter – soon they might all be the same.)
