Words from the author:
I am a writer and producer. I write books and scripts of my own, I ghost write, I write for adults and I write for kids, occasionally with my husband, author Joseph D’Agnese. I started out in journalism and have covered everything from women’s issues, sports and history to food, travel and education in places like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Village Voice, Saveur, Discover, Ms., Reader’s Digest, and others. I worked as head writer for ABC's "Who Wants to be Millionaire" during its Emmy award-winning first season and have produced for ESPN, MSNBC and a variety of independent productions. More production information can be found at the NutGraf Productions website. View my photography here.
There are a lot of other projects in various stages of development, but hey—a little mystery goes a long way.
