Some of the most notable titles I've worked on include Tom Reiss’ Pulitzer Prize-winning historical biography The Black Count, Bill Beverly's LA Times Book Prize-winning crime novel Dodgers, CJ Tudor's internationally bestselling thriller The Chalk Man, Jackie MacMullan and Rafe Bartholomew’s New York Times bestselling sports history Basketball: A Love Story, Jonathan Abrams' New York Times bestselling oral histories All The Pieces Matter and Boys Among Men, Peter Guber’s #1 New York Times business/leadership bestseller Tell to Win, Melissa Scrivner Love's Edgar-nominated, Dagger-award winning thriller Lola, the New York Times bestselling memoirs of Condoleezza Rice, Phil Town’s #1 New York Times bestselling business book Rule #1, the New York Times Editors' Choice science/psychology book The Invisible Gorilla, the New York Times bestselling military/current affairs book The Fourth Star, the internationally bestselling, British Book Award-nominated novels of Joseph Knox; Hank Haney's #1 New York Times bestselling sports biography The Big Miss, the New York Times bestselling memoirs of Pete Sampras and Johnny Damon, the acclaimed novels of Tom Cooper, Stuart Neville, D.B.
