About Me

picture

I'm a broad-based newspaper and magazine human interest and lifestyle feature writer with hundreds of articles appearing in publications such as Newsday, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Saturday Evening Post and many others. In addition, I'm the author/co-author of three non-fiction books.

Also a published essayist, I'm currently producing a live essay reading series in the New York metropolitan area with a group of professional writers. The ongoing theme: "Living, Out Loud: Writers Riff on Love, Sweat & Fears." Reading venues include the prestigious Guild Hall in East Hampton, The Half King in Chelsea Cornelia Street Cafe in the West Village and the DUMBO Arts Festival in Brooklyn.

Over a career spanning more than two decades, I've also launched and edit several blogs, such as The Art of Retail Marketing and I contribute to HuffingtonPost.com and Celebrations.com. Check out my column in Parade.com!

I'm based in New York and am a long-standing member of the Society of Professional Journalists, The Press Club of Long Island, The Authors Guild and the American Society of Journalists and Authors.
