Steve Luxenberg, a Washington Post associate editor and award-winning author, has worked for more than 30 years as a newspaper editor and reporter. Post reporters working with Steve have won two Pulitzer Prizes.

His award-winning nonfiction book, Annie’s Ghosts: A Journey Into a Family Secret, has been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and in Parade Magazine. It was named to  The Washington Post’s Best Books of 2009 list, and chosen as a Michigan Notable Book by the Library of Michigan.

Steve, a native of Detroit, also has a TV “credit”—look carefully, and you’ll see him as an extra in HBO’s dramatic series “The Wire.” (Hint: A three-second headshake in season five.)

He and his wife, Mary Jo Kirschman, a former school librarian, live in Baltimore. They have two adult children.
