I was a triple major at the University of New Hampshire and started my career at the small but mighty Concord Monitor, where I discovered my love for narrative writing. I wrote about health care at The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Boston Globe, and I was part of the Globe staff that won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news, for coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings. For three years, I led the features report at the Portland Press Herald in Maine, where I edited weekly sections on arts and entertainment, books, food, and sustainable living. I am a board member of the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance.
My writing also has been published by or is forthcoming from Mother Jones, Politico, Boston Globe Magazine, National Journal, The Week, ParentMap and WBUR. I am a regular contributor to FairWarning.
I live in a 1920s bungalow near the ocean in Maine. I especially enjoy assignments that allow me to work with my husband, the extremely talented photographer Yoon S. Byun. We publish dispatches about our most important collaboration, parenting our two young sons, on Instagram: @StrewnWonder.
