Annie Blaylock McQueen
Annie has been a fan of the magazine ever since her family was featured on the cover of The Bellaire Buzz in February 2006. She grew up in West University and attended River Oaks Baptist School from three years old to eighth grade, then Lamar High School and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English/Creative Writing from Louisiana State University. Annie has always been passionate about writing. Her favorite teacher, sixth grade Language Arts teacher Mike Petrizzo (who still teaches at R.O.B.S.), used a memoir she wrote in his class as a sample for other students. More than 15 years later, Mr. Petrizzo was still using it each year in his classroom. Annie met Buzz Editor Joni Hoffman through a wedding Facebook contest she entered with her fiancé Tyler (which they ended up winning!). A month after they wed in March 2012, Annie started working at The Buzz as a member of the editorial team. She writes the Buzz About Town column and feature editorial articles. In July 2014, Annie and Tyler welcomed twins, a boy named Cash and a girl named Lila. In her spare time, aside from spending time with her babies, Annie enjoys playing with her niece and nephews, reading, exercising and interior design projects.
