Boyle grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, and rose to prominence among the Alt Lit and internet community after writing popular articles for Thought Catalog and marrying writer Tao Lin. Together, Boyle and Lin created several movies for their company MDMAfilms, which they began in 2010. In 2011, Lin published Boyle's poetry collection, selected unpublished blog posts of a mexican panda express employee, which garnered favorable reviews.

On March 17, 2013, she began "liveblogging", documenting her daily activities on Tumblr; the liveblog reached 350,000 words and was called a "painfully honest and raw record of a person’s life." Boyle ceased the project in September and will publish a print edition with Tyrant Books.
Boyle has been profiled by magazines such as Nylon and Elle. Critic Jacob Appel has praised her work in Necessary Fiction as "a distinctive break from the past."
