I'm a Peabody Award-winning journalist and a New York Times bestselling author whose areas of expertise include elder wisdom, justice issues, and women's history. HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Random House, and Doubleday are among the publishers of my nonfiction books. I am also the author of two historical novels published by Simon & Schuster.
My first book was the oral history, Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years, a New York Times bestseller for 117 weeks. I worked as an advisor to the producers when the book was adapted for the Broadway stage and for an award-winning television film.
Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years
