Scottoline featured in NY Times

Lisa Scottoline '76, the best-selling author and former DP Photo Editor, was featured in last weekend's New York Times in an article about how e-books have changed the lives of professional writers.

In the piece, Scottoline explained how new trends in digital publishing have caused her to increase her yearly outputs of thrillers from one book a year to two.

“It used to be that once a year was a big deal,” she said. “You could saturate the market. But today the culture is a great big hungry maw, and you have to feed it.”

Scottoline has written over a dozen best-sellers, including Final Appeal, which one the 1995 Edgar Award for "Best Paperback Original Mystery." She also writes a column called "Chick Wit" for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
