Maureen graduated from Rutgers J School and went right into covering computers and banking, a path that led to Wall Street and stock exchanges in time for Gordon Gecko. She tried her hand editing a consumer credit newsletter, which resulted in her exposing American Express for secretly manipulating the lucrative bank credit card market. When the 89-92 Recession dried up jobs in the US and UK, she moved to the latter and found work covering little known investment instruments called derivatives. While still in school, Maureen covered municipal beats and the Somerset County Freeholders, for The Home News, while also contributing to The Sunday Jersey Section of the NY Times. In 2000, Maureen created a talk radio show to track the oceanfront recovery of Asbury Park, where developers transcribed her weekly discourse. From that grew a two-act play that she's planning to bring to the stage this fall, and a column on radio for the Asbury Park Press. She just finished a novel inspired by her life in London.
