Roots hails from Milford, Connecticut, and got her start in journalism when the arts editor of The New Haven Register gave her a shot as a student reporter. After graduating from Northeastern University and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, Roots wrote for The Patriot Ledger and Science & Theology News before turning her love of TV (and many childhood summers spent soaking up Days of Our Lives storylines) into an editor gig at Soaps In Depth. She covered All My Children and ultimately became senior news editor, then took a few years to eat cookies work as a writer/editor at Girl Scouts of the USA before landing at TVLine. She lives in Manhattan with her husband, Nate.
