Stanford-educated magazine journalist, non-fiction book author, and editorial consultant specializing in the social sciences.

Overview

I'm a Stanford-educated journalist, author, and editorial consultant specializing in the social sciences. My articles and essays have appeared in Discover, the New York Times Magazine, Scientific American and Scientific American Mind, O, The Oprah Magazine, Psychology Today, Slate, FastCompany, Stanford Magazine, the Washington Post, Wired, and more. I'm the author of one business book, THE MIDDLEMAN ECONOMY, and have completed collaborations on two others: SECRETS OF THE MONEYLAB and HOW GOOGLE WORKS.

My editorial services include ghostwriting, developmental editing, Internet research, structuring book proposals, suggesting appropriate agents, and guiding authors through the entire process from idea to publication.

"Marina Krakovsky, our research partner, always goes about two steps farther than we expect. She is as insightful and thoughtful as she is diligent and thorough." (From the Acknowledgements of HOW GOOGLE WORKS, by Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg, and Alan Eagle)
