Read information about the authorI'm the author of several well-received biographies, including the New York Times bestseller and Editor's Choice "Eye on the Struggle: Ethel Payne, The First Lady of the Black Press," which received the Benjamin Hooks National Book Prize and was long-listed for the PEN/Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award for Biography.
My newest book, "The Ambulance Drivers: Hemingway, Dos Passos, and a Friendship Made and Lost in War" will be out in April.
The Ambulance Drivers tells the story of two aspiring writers, Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos, who met in World War I and forged a twenty-year friendship that produced some of America's greatest novels, giving voice to a generation shaken by war.
In war, Hemingway found adventure, women, and a cause. Dos Passos saw only oppression and futility. Their different visions eventually turned their private friendship into a nasty public fight, fueled by money, jealousy, and lust. This is not only a biography of the turbulent friendship between two of the century's greatest writers but also an illustration of how war inspires and destroys, unites and divides.
It was a challenge, but a fun one, to follow the path of these writers from the war front to Paris cafés, from the streets of Pamplona to the waters of Key West.
My previous books include "Pulitzer: A Life in Politics, Print, and Power," "The Rose Man of Sing Sing: A True Tale of Life, Murder, and Redemption in the Age of Yellow Journalism," and "Jailhouse Journalism: The Fourth Estate Behind Bars."
I've also penned some Kindle Singles and articles, asw well as book reviews, for newspaper and magazines.
My books have brought me appearances on NPR’s All Things Considered, PBS’s News Hour, and C-Span’s Book TV. I was the founding editor of the monthly Biographer’s Craft and served as both the executive director and president of Biographers International Organization (BIO).
Prior to becoming a full-time writer, I spent a decade as a journalist, a decade working in the book and magazine business, and a decade as a high school teacher.
I make my home in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains above Santa Fe, New Mexico.
