About

I am a freelance writer and editor in New York with nearly 30 years experience. During the last decade I have increasingly focused my journalism on education writing; I am a contributing editor at Teachers College’s Alumni Magazine, TC Today, currently write regularly for Scholastic Administrator and consult on writing projects for College for Every Student. Over the years, my journalism on other subjects has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and U.S. News & World Report among others. I have also published essays in Newsday, Smithsonian and Family Fun.

In addition, since 1992 I have worked regularly with clients such as Clairol, Bristol-Myers Squibb, American Express and Deloitte on corporate internal communications. I currently write regularly for Bristol-Myers’ Insite Magazine.

When I’m not engaged in those pursuits, I write fiction. I have published more than a dozen short stories, in Raritan (forthcoming), Eclectica, Barnstormer, Confrontation, Short Story America, Northwest Review, Pank, The Laurel Review, Concho River Review, RE:AL and Pacific Review. I have completed a novel, “Ghost Road,” and am currently at work on a new novel, “Serafina” and on additional short stories.

I graduated with honors from Harvard College in 1984 with a bachelor’s degree in History & Literature and received a master’s degree from Columbia School of Journalism in 1988. In 1984, while working as a beat reporter at the Anniston Star in Anniston, Alabama, I shared an Associated Press First Place award in the category of news features.
