Nancy Ruhling

Astoria, NY USA

Professional Experience

I've written about everything from Broadway theater to commercial real estate and have interviewed everyone from Baxter the Clown to Citigroup's Sandy Weill. I got interview-shy media mogul Rupert Murdoch to talk to me -- and write his own NY Post headline -- and I got legal eagle Barry Slotnick to let me be his sole judge and jury. I do the impossible last-minute assignments, the ones you needed the day before yesterday. I specialize in personality profiles and focus on commercial and residential real estate, art, antiques and interior design, but I write on just about any topic. I wrote the introduction to "Albert Hadley: Drawings and the Design Process" (New York School of Interior Design 2005). I also edit books, copyedit feature and news stories for daily newspapers and write website copy and press releases and offer media coaching to CEOs. I am the author of "Astoria Characters," a blog on For clips, go to
