Welcome. I'm a novelist and a journalist. Here's my latest piece, for the New Yorker, on an investigator who handles wrongful convictions and comes to doubt one of his own cases, a 1995 Bronx murder.
For eight years, I was a New York Times reporter, covering courts, retail, and media. Here are some of my favorite articles. I left in February, and am now splitting my time between writing my second novel and journalism.
My first novel, Everybody Rise, was an instant New York Times bestseller, a New York Times Book Review Editors' Pick, a best book of the month at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and a best book of summer at People, Time, Entertainment Weekly, Marie Claire, and Goop. Fox 2000 bought movie rights, with the producer of Devil Wears Prada and Twilight producing. It came out in paperback in June.
