Wiki

Brook Busey (born June 14, 1978), better known by the pen name Diablo Cody, is an American screenwriter, stripper, writer, blogger, journalist, and author. She was first known for her candid chronicling of her year as a stripper in her Pussy Ranch blog and her 2006 memoir, Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper. Cody achieved critical acclaim worldwide for the script of the 2007 film Juno, winning the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.

A dramedy created by Cody, called United States of Tara, based on an idea by Steven Spielberg, was picked up for 12 episodes (including pilot) by the U.S. cable TV network Showtime, the Canadian channel The Movie Network and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. After four episodes aired, the show was renewed for a second season. Two days after the second season premiere, it was renewed for a third season.

Cody, who took the pen name Diablo Cody (diablo is Spanish for "devil") after repeatedly listening to the song El Diablo by Arcadia while passing through Cody, Wyoming, attended Benet Academy, a Roman Catholic school in Lisle, Illinois. Cody and her older brother Marc grew up in Lemont, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Cody was raised Catholic. She graduated from the University of Iowa with a media studies degree. While at the University of Iowa, Cody was a DJ at KRUI 89.7 FM. She also worked in the acquisitions department in the main university library. Her first jobs were doing secretarial work at a Chicago law firm and later proofreading copy for advertisements that played on Twin Cities radio stations.
