Paige McKenzie

Best-Selling YA Trilogy Author and YouTube Sensation

Paige McKenzie, the face of The Haunting of Sunshine Girl, is the new triple threat: YouTuber, author, actor. The Haunting of Sunshine Girl came to life on YouTube in late 2010, when Paige teamed up with producer Nick Hagen and her mother, actress Mercedes Rose, to tell a spooky supernatural story in the style of YA TV shows like Gossip Girl via episodic YouTube videos. Within a few short years, the series boasted viewership in the tens of millions and has grown to a network that includes videos from Sasquatch to Zombies and more. The Haunting of Sunshine Girl is now a best-selling young adult trilogy and soon-to-be TV show, starring Paige as Sunshine.

Paige is also a contributing writer for Huffington Post, where she has written articles about parenting, from a teenager's point of view, and at length about online safety for teens as well as what parents don't know teens are like online. Because her fan base connects with her online through social media and YouTube, Paige has first hand account of the often dangerous ways teens behave online. At the podium, Paige connects instantly with audiences of all ages.

Paige lives in Portland, Oregon with 5 cats and her tiny dog, Pongo.
