I am a veteran writer and editor with 20 years' newspaper experience, as well as an experienced ghostwriter. I taught journalism for 10 years.
My ghostwriting career began with Rebuilt from Broken Glass, the story of a Holocaust survivor who escaped after Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) and later, as a member of the U.S. Army, was an instructor in a course to teach democracy to German POWs and served as liaison to Wernher von Braun, catalyst of the U.S. space program. The book is now in its second printing and is recommended by the N.J. Commission on Holocaust Education.
My second book, The Empathy Advantage: Coaching Kids to be Kind, Respectful, and Successful, was published in 2020.
My journey started at the Trenton (N.J.) Times, where I covered everything from 9/11 to politics to professional sports, as well as serving as a copy editor. After four years as senior public information manager of a New Jersey state agency, I moved on to Educational Testing Service, where I edited and oversaw the production of policy reports related to education and the labor market.
I founded LHanover Communications, a full-service writing and editing service, in 2020.
I am currently available most days and evenings. Ghostwriting rates are negotiable. My editing rate is $50-$75 per hour depending on the length and complexity of the project.
