Janine Latus Biography
Janine Latus is a freelance writer, radio commentator, and regular speaker on
domestic abuse issues. She has busked on the streets of Chicago to write about
what its like to sing for your supper. She has galloped the beaches of the
Dominican Republic, eaten her way through Kansas City and danced herself into a
frenzy, all to gather the kind of you-are-there details that make a story sing.
She has coaxed women to tell her how much they weigh and why, and couples to
admit how much they earn, how they spend their money and what theyd like to do
differently. She has cried along with women as they described surviving
mastectomies, and wept with their family members when they did not.
Her work has appeared in O magazine, More, Womans Day,
Family Circle, Parents, All You, American Baby
and the in-flight magazines for US Air, American Airlines, Continental and TWA.
She has written for WomensWallStreet.com and MSN Money. Her commentaries have
aired on Public Radio Internationals Marketplace, and she routinely speaks at
conferences, workshops and press events on things as far apart as domestic
violence and the joy of selecting the perfect verb. She has taught at the
Missouri School of Journalism and at East Carolina University, and at writing
workshops in Missouri, University of North Carolina and Wisconsin. She is
on the board of directors of the American Society of Journalists and Authors and
lives in Virginia. If I Am Missing or Dead is her first book.
