I'm writing REBEL HEART, a critical biography of Madonna that's also a look at pop in the MTV era, for Peter Joseph at Hanover Square, and I'm repped by Paul Bresnick.
I cover music and technology.
I've been online since 1990 (when I was in high school) and have owned the domain name maura.com since 1996.
I've been writing about music since college, and my editorship of Idolator.com and the Village Voice's music section pushed a new type of writing about music — enthusiastic about pop, distrustful of canons, welcoming to people who didn't fit the stodgy-guy rock-writer mold — to the front of the conversation.
I have 22,000-plus Twitter followers and 216,000 Tumblr followers, and I am on Wikipedia.
