Known nationally and internationally as the woman who lived in one of the world’s smallest apartments, Felice Cohen is the award-winning author of the bestselling books Half In: A Coming-of-Age Memoir of Forbidden Love (about a secret, lesbian, age-gap affair she had at 23 with her boss, a 57-year-old woman), 90 Lessons for Living Large in 90 Square Feet (...or More) (inspired by the YouTube video of her tiny NYC studio with over 25 million views) and What Papa Told Me, about her grandfather’s life before, during and after the Holocaust. What Papa Told Me has been endorsed by Elie Wiesel and Yad Vashem in Israel, is taught in schools across the country, has been translated into Polish, and has sold over 35,000 copies around the world.
Felice has been featured on Good Morning America, NBC, CBS, NPR, Time, Globe & Mail, New York Daily News, the Daily Mail and more. She also speaks around the country about how living tiny made her life larger as well as offering organizing tips on decluttering and organizing. What enabled Felice to “live large” in that tiny studio is that she has been a professional organizer for over 25 years.
Felice also writes The Fancy Tales, a modern day take on the versions of the classic fairy tales we grew up with. These tales take place in New York City with the magic happening in Central Park, and contain a wholesomely presented and slightly sophisticated LGBTQ+ twist. Felice splits her time between NYC and Cape Cod.
