The paperback for The Restless Sleep: Inside New York City’s Cold Case Squad, (Viking Press) came out in July, 2006. My most recent book is Unbelievable: Investigations into Ghosts, Poltergeists, Telepathy, and Other Unseen Phenomena from the Duke Parapsychology Laboratory (Ecco, 2009).
I am also a very occasional contributor to the NPR show, All Things Considered. When this book first came out I did a commentary about cold cases which you can listen to here.
Also, the former commanding officer Vito Spano and I were interviewed on The Leonard Lopate show. You can listen to that here.
In 1990, I founded Echo, a NYC-based online service where people log in everyday to talk about work, love, how hard life can be, and what’s on TV. I wrote about Echo and the internet in a book called, Cyberville: Clicks, Culture and the Creation of an Online Town (Warner Books).
I grew up on Long Island, received a B.F.A. from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and a graduate degree from the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU.
