Acclaimed novelist and nonfiction writer, best known for the Bailey Weggins mystery series and gutsy career guides that help women climb the career ladder.

Author of the career book I Shouldn't Be Telling You This: Success Secrets Every Gutsy Girl Should Know.


I love writing crime novels, but I also find it enormously gratifying to share work strategies with other women, based on my career running five national magazines. I’m particularly interested in showing women how to break out from the pack, ask for what they want, give their success legs, and develop their own personal brands.

I have it now. As much as I LOVED running Cosmo, I eventually yearned for a more freelance/entrepreneurial existence that would allow me lots of personal freedom. The change has meant that I can spend big chunks of time at the home my husband and I bought four years ago in Uruguay.
