Welcome to MichelineMaynard.com

Hello, and welcome to my webpage. I’m a journalist, broadcaster, author and professor.Hometown Holdouts cover

I’m the senior editor at the daily NPR news program Here & Now, based at WBUR in Boston.

I’m also a contributor to Forbes.com, which has just published my new eBook, Hometown Holdouts: Business Lessons From Food Stars Loyal To Their Roots.

Hometown Holdouts attempts to answer the questions, “How do they stay in business?” and “Why do they stay there instead of expanding?” My dear friend, the cookbook author Dorie Greenspan, wrote the foreword.

You can read all my food and business stories for Forbes here. My essay on The Joy of Food Writing can be found at Medium here. 

You may know me from my years at The New York Times, from my appearances on PBS NewsHour , or from one of my other books, such as The End of Detroit, How The Big Three Lost Their Grip On The American Car Market. 

Look for me on Twitter @mickimaynard. I’m Micheline Maynard on Facebook and LinkedIn. I also post regular answers on Quora. I’m a contributor to Medium.com, and you can follow me there, too, @mickimaynard.

If you want to book me for a show, I have access to a landline, Report-IT on my mobile phone, Skype, can arrange for an ISDN, and I can arrive camera ready. You’re welcome to email me at vmaynard (at) umich.edu.

Feel free to contact me or my literary agent, Alice Martell, to arrange a speaking engagement.

My only product endorsement is for Vocalzone, the worst-tasting lozenges you can find. Believe me, they’ll clear up your throat in no time. No money changes hands. Only lozenges.

That’s the short version. If you want all my career details, take a look at My Bio.
