Former public relations director for Revlon, Jane MacLean Craig, is the co-author of three highly acclaimed books, with two more slated for release over the next year.
Her first book, ABOUT FACE (Warner Books) received an unprecedented amount of publicity, including a 2-page excerpt in COSMOPOLITAN Magazine’s 25th anniversary issue. It was also featured in VOGUE, HARPER’S BAZZAR, THE LOS ANGELES TIMES, THE NEW YORK POST; as well as on GOOD MORNING AMERICA, GOOD DAY NEW YORK, and A.M. LOS ANGELES, among many others.
The second, THE WOMAN’S HIV SOURCEBOOK (Taylor Publishing/
ROWAN LITTLEFIELD) was born of her closest friend’s diagnosis of the disease (the result of a tainted blood transfusion in the early ‘80s) and the shockingly limited amount of material available for women on the subject at the time. Besides receiving a glowing review in PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, the book was also featured in LADIES HOME JOURNAL, WOMAN’S WORLD, REDBOOK, as well as on numerous national radio and television shows. In addition, it was the focus of a PBS special on women’s health.
Her third book, THE OFFICIAL RENT-A-HUSBAND GUIDE TO A SAFE, PROBLEM-FREE HOME, was published by BROADWAY BOOKS/RANDOM HOUSE and immediately soared to the #1 spot for such on-line books sellers as AMAZON.com and BARNES & NOBLE, where it held fast in that position for several months. It was featured on OPRAH WINFREY twice, as well as on THE TODAY SHOW, THE CBS EARLY SHOW, THE VIEW, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, and CNBC’S THE BIG IDEA with DONNY DEUTCH, to name a few shows, and was spotlighted in PEOPLE, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, GOOD HOUSEKEEPING, and THE WASHINGTON POST, among many other publications.
Ms. Craig’s two latest book, FINDING N-E-D (No Evidence of Disease), will be released on May 8, 2012, and KINGONOMICS: INIGHTS FROM DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. TO TRANSFORM YOUR BUSINESS AND YOUR LIFE is slated for distribution in January 2013. She holds a master’s degree in journalism from Boston University and is a member of the Authors’ League and the Authors’ Guild of America
