As a professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, I'm an author who studies other authors, including journalists and romance writers. After 15 years as a journalist, I got my PhD in communication from Stanford so I could write longer works. My trade books include The Family CFO with Mary Claire Allvine (Rodale); Influence, with Maddie Dychtwald (Hyperion); and THIS is How We Do it: The Working Mother's Manifesto, with Carol Evans (Hudson Street). I'm currently working on a history of romance writers, contracted with Princeton University Press.
