THE PROLIFIC YEARS
In 1987, after five years as managing editor at Habitat, I decided I wanted to do more freelance writing. I worked out an arrangement with publisher Carol Ott in which I worked as an editorial consultant to the magazine (meaning I would write a feature, edit some stories, and give advice/input every month, for a regular stipend) and would have more time to write freelance. The next ten years, from 1987 to 1997, were my most prolific years as a writer. I wrote film and TV analysis pieces for Entertainment Weekly, Diversion, Video, Video Times, Movie Times, and Empire; wrote media business stories for Backstage, Shoot, Wrap, INTV Jourmal, and View; and wrote real estate stories for New York Newsday. Then, in 1998, I signed a contract to write my second book, Investigating Couples, which was published in 2001.
