I'm a 42 year publishing industry veteran having held executive posts at Macmillan (7 years as Director of Computer Publishing Programs) and several other large houses. I've also written more than 20 nonfiction books published by such imprints as Doubleday, Oxford University Press, Crown, Basic, and Chicago Review Press.
My expertise lies in the areas of finance, tech, memoir, bio, and general adult non-fiction. I've as well written a number of biographical/historical books for adolescent readers, these published by Chelsea House.
My books have been reviewed favorably in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Esquire, KIRKUS, and other major media, and I myself have written book reviews for The Wall Street Journal and the San Francisco Chronicle.
My consulting/ghostwriting clients include the Publications Division of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) as well as the Ruth Mott Foundation of Michigan.
USHMM's Mel Hecker comments: "I could not have asked for a more cooperative and skilled writer/contractor to help us with a difficult project. Ed is what I would call a value-added provider, doing his work diligently while adding worthwhile suggestions to the mix and going the extra mile to make the project a success. The authors and I greatly appreciated Ed's fine ability to turn a phrase and make a dry historic account into a very good read."
Another client, Raquel Thueme, President of the Ruth Mott Foundation, has said: "I worked with Ed as the author of THE LIFE OF CHARLES STEWART MOTT: INDUSTRIALIST, PHILANTHROPIST, MR. FLINT. In addition to crafting a well-researched biography and all around ‘great read’, Ed was enthusiastic, responsive and creative in all elements of the book’s development and promotion. His publishing and communications background is a bonus to his skill and style as an author. I highly recommend him!"
From 1980 to 1994, I served in various positions at Wiley, St. Martin's Press, Marcel Dekker, and Churchill-Livingstone, then spent seven years as Director of Computer Publishing Programs for Macmillan/Newbridge. Since 1994 I've written/packaged more than 20 nonfiction books for such firms as Doubleday, Simon and Schuster, Oxford University Press, Crown, Chicago Review Press, Basic, Springer-Verlag, and Osborne/McGraw Hill. Since 2010, I've continued to consult while also managing my own (very) small publishing start-up, New Street Communications, LLC. My son is now taking the helm at New Street, and I will be focusing on ghost work and my own writing. I am based eight nautical miles from Newport, RI. Readily available for Zoom meetings wherever you are.
