He ghostwrote reviews with NPR before graduating to history books for young readers.
Now a long-time author and ghostwriter for adults and young adults alike, Barry Denenberg's critically acclaimed non-fiction includes: Voices from Vietnam and Lincoln Shot as well as biographies of Anne Frank, Nelson Mandela, Elvis Presley, Jackie Robinson and Charles Lindbergh. School Library Journal and Kirkus Reviews selected Titanic Sinks!, Barry's most recent book as one of the best books of 2011.
In the spring of 2009, he founded a manuscript development company called BD/A—a natural outgrowth of his expertise in ghostwriting and his desire to continue collaborating with the more innovative researchers, editors and designers that he's met through his last few projects.
One of those projects, probably the one he'd tell you about on a sandwich board or in an elevator, if he got the chance—is Another Side: American History Revisited, a collection of hand-crafted historical short stories that he's been mulling over for twenty-five years and working on seriously for the past five.
