Gabrielle Glaser    

Author, Award-winning Journalist

Gabrielle Glaser is an author and award-winning journalist who writes frequently about issues of addiction and mental health. She specializes in long-form narrative and investigative writing, especially about social issues, health, and medicine. Glaser grew up in Tangent, Oregon. She attended Stanford University, where she received a bachelor's and master's degree in history.

Glaser started her journalistic career as a news assistant at The New York Times in Washington, D.C.. She worked as a reporter at the Associated Press in Baltimore, Maryland, and Warsaw, Poland. From Eastern Europe, Glaser also reported for The Economist, The Dallas Morning News, The Village Voice, and National Public Radio.

Since the late 1990s, Glaser has examined social, cultural, and national health trends for The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine, Health, and The Oregonian in Portland, where she was a staff writer. I taught feature writing at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, and won the Missouri Lifestyle Journalism award for my groundbreaking work exploring international and interracial adoption, "Sending Black Babies North." Before Her Best-Kept Secret, she wrote Strangers to the Tribe: Portraits of Interfaith Marriage, and The Nose: A Profile of Sex, Beauty, and Survival. Glaser appears frequently as a commentator and a guest on local and national television and radio.

Glaser lives in New Jersey with her husband and is the mother of three wise daughters. She loves national parks, new stamps in her passport, and when everybody puts their stuff away.
