Verified identity Lock


I'm an investigative journalist and former People magazine senior writer and editor who specializes in getting exclusive interviews on some of the nation's most high-profile crime, medical, human-interest and political stories. I know how to take complex subjects and make them readable and how to edit in a way that retains the author's unique writing voice. I have a master's degree in criminal justice and I know how to do the research to gain knowledge of an issue I don't know much about. I am a voracious reader and nothing would make me happier than to edit and write books of my own.
