Welcome. I'm a novelist and a journalist. Here's my latest piece, for the New York Times, on how jury selection has changed. Now lawyers are picking jurors with no opinions—on anything. The piece came out of my Martin Shkreli trial coverage for the Times, pulled together here.
Here's another favorite piece, for the New Yorker, on an agent handling wrongful convictions who comes to doubt one of his own 20-year-old solves. At the Times, I've covered stories ranging from aging Mafiosos to international terrorists. Here are some of my favorite articles.
My first novel, Everybody Rise, was an instant New York Times bestseller, a New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice, 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.
