Aury Wallington was a writer on Gravity Falls. She has also written some novels such as a teenage novel, Pop!. She has written extensively for TV, and her latest book is based upon science fiction series Heroes. The novel, titled Heroes: Saving Charlie, is the first in what will be a series of Heroes books which have been written with the full cooperation of Heroes creator Tim Kring. Aury currently created the NBC.com series Dial * starring AnnaLynne McCord. She also wrote for the live-action Cartoon Network TV series Tower Prep.
Wallington grew up in Pennsylvania and always wanted to be a writer but was not sure how to go about it. She graduated from Tufts University and moved to New Orleans because one of her favorite writers, Ellen Gilchrist, was from there and Wallington thought that she would soak up some inspiration from living there too. Instead, she spent her nights bartending and her days writing really bad poetry and collecting rejection slips.
After a stint in New York as personal assistant to an actor, she moved to Mexico to do research for a screenplay she was writing. She ran out of money before finishing the script and headed back to New York, landing a job as script coordinator on TV show Sex and the City. Wallington was thrilled when she was asked to write an episode for the final season of the show and in the meantime worked on her novel, Pop!, and wrote a one-woman show which was performed off-Broadway as part of the Double Helix Theater’s One Festival.
When Sex and the City ended, she moved to Los Angeles and wrote for Veronica Mars and Courting Alex. She also wrote a pilot called "Pure Sunshine" for Sony Television. She is currently working on a new FOX drama called The Wedding Album.
Wallington currently lives in Los Angeles with her two year old rescue dog, Tuesday.

- Waddles was named by Wallington after her own pet pigs she owned during her childhood. Every year she would raise, care, and love the pig for months, and every year her family would cook and eat Waddles. She'd get another pig for 4-H and the cycle repeated itself for years.
