I spent more than six years as a staff writer and reporter in the Life & Style section of The Journal News (owned by the Gannett/USA Today Network), which is the most respected and widely circulated daily newspaper in Westchester County (directly above New York City). I also ghost-write and edit books and manuscripts.
