Professional Experience

An award-winning journalist, editor, and author for 25+ years, I cover current events for national audiences and recently coauthored a New York Times best-selling book. As a correspondent for People magazine for 10+ years, I've been sent to Africa and Haiti, writing about disasters, veterans and the military, issues impacting children and families, and the disadvantaged. I'm extremely resourceful, professional, and deadline-oriented. As an author I'm represented by Robert Guinsler at Sterling Lord Literistic and am looking for my next book project too!

An essay about how Lyme disease has affected my teenage daughter and our family.
I followed this boy for one year from California to Zimbabwe. His story was selected as one of CNN's Heroes of the Year.
This is the second part of a two-part story highlighting President Obama's "surge" of U.S. Marines to Afghanistan. For the first part, I interviewed story candidates who were days away from departing. For the second segment, I waited for the men at their homecoming and recorded their reactions.
