Bernie Madoff’s Daughter-in-Law Hunts for Book Deal

Stephanie Morgan, daughter-in-law to fraudulent investor Bernie Madoff (pictured, via), hopes to land a book deal.

Folio Literary Management agent Steve Troha represents the widow of Mark Madoff. New York Magazine has spoken with some members of the Madoff family, and they worry what she might write.

Here’s more from the article: “Publishers say she would tell the emotional story of a strong-minded woman overcoming tragedy and moving ahead with life. She has told editors from imprints at Hachette Book Group and HarperCollins that she has a couple of letters from Bernie.”

New York Times journalist Diana B. Henriques released her new Madoff title, The Wizard of Lies yesterday. Henriques has interviewed Madoff twice since he started serving his prison sentence. As previously reported by New York Magazine, several other investigative reporters are working on Madoff-related projects.
