I'm the author of 24 books, including a few books for writers, Céline Dion's authorized biography, a Marilyn Monroe bio authorized by her estate, a couple of children's picture books, and adult nonfiction books on topics ranging from fertility to bullying. My books have been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Dr. Phil, Dr. Drew, Access Hollywood, The View, Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, and in People, Time, and many others.
Some of my books are mine alone, but I often work as a ghostwriter both for celebrities and "regular people" with great stories to tell. I also write for many magazines, including Writer's Digest.
I hope you'll explore this site and learn more about me and my work. Thanks for visiting!
