I'm the author of Not Quite Adults: Why 20-Somethings Are Choosing a Slower Path to Adulthood and Why It's Good for Everyone (Bantam-Dell, Dec. 2010). I focus on nonfiction, and social science broadly within the nonfiction realm.
Other than books, I own a small business, Hiredpen, inc., that helps academics and nonprofits convey their work and research to larger audiences. We offer editorial, social media, and design services, as well as strategic communications. A current project involves a team of writers and video producers showcasing work at the intersection of digital media and education. See our site here: www.spotlight.macfound.org
When I'm not writing, I love to cook, go to the movies, tinker around on the cello, and read wonky nonfiction. My alter-ego loves a good boxing match, rugby, a day on the water, and watching Roger Federer in motion. In my recent past, I was a Golden Gloves boxer and an adventure racer until my knee gave out. Now I play that maddening game, tennis.
