Michelle Burford is a Harvard-trained writer and editor based in Manhattan

Founding Senior Editor of O, The Oprah Magazine

•  My biggest books: I’ve written memoirs for Olympic champ Gabby Douglas, singer Toni Braxton, “Dancing With the Stars” sensation Amy Purdy, and Michelle Knight, the first Cleveland girl brutalized by Ariel Castro.

 

•  What I can do for you: I deliver high-profile memoirs, plus mag and web features, but toss me any story and I’ll make it sing. With each project I take on, I have one intention: to craft a compelling narrative that sells. Let’s start yours.

 

•  I can also: Keep a celeb author sane during the editorial process and get along with almost anyone. Malbec helps.

 

•  Why you should call me: I produce page-turners. I’m an empathetic interviewer with a keen ear for voice. I’m also ready to roll: I can travel to work on your story.
