I'm Ed Renehan - managing director of New Street and also a professional consultant on writing and publishing.
My consulting/ghostwriting clients include the Publications Division of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) as well as the family of the late Seymour St. John (longtime headmaster at Choate/Rosemary Hall) for whom I wrote a family-commissioned biography.
In his endorsement on my LinkedIn profile, the USHMM's Mel Hecker comments: "I could not have asked for a more cooperative and skilled writer/contractor to help us with a difficult project. Ed is what I would call a value-added provider, doing his work diligently while adding worthwhile suggestions to the mix and going the extra mile to make the project a success. The authors and I greatly appreciated Ed's fine ability to turn a phrase and make a dry historic account into a very good read."
I'm a 37 year publishing industry veteran having held executive posts at Macmillan and several other large houses. I've also written 20 nonfiction books published by such imprints as Doubleday, Oxford University Press, and Basic.
My particular expertise lies in the areas of finance, tech, memoir, bio, and general adult non-fiction. I've as well written a number of biographical/historical books for adolescent readers, these published by Chelsea House. One of these is a biography of Pope John Paul II, with an Introduction by Arthur Schlesinger. But I can write/edit just about anything.
My books have been reviewed favorably in The New York Times, Esquire, KIRKUS, and other major media, and I myself have written book reviews for The Wall Street Journal and The San Francisco Chronicle.
In a starred review, Publishers Weekly said of my DARK GENIUS OF WALL STREET: "Renehan's sumptuous prose and his dazzling research and style provide a window into [Jay] Gould's ambitions and offer a first-rate social history of the financial workings of his time."
In its review of my Theodore Roosevelt bio entitled THE LION'S PRIDE, the same publication commented: "Through previously unpublished family papers, judiciously chosen facts and a moving narrative that skillfully parallels the personal and political, Renehan reveals a great deal about American society and politics, and about the culture of war."
