by | Jun 2, 2022 | Other News

Debbie Burke, an award-winning author and editor, and the founder of Queen Esther Publishing LLC, joined Jewish News last month as a staff copywriter.

Burke has edited hundreds of books and articles for authors around the world, as well as for many boutique and university presses in the US and the UK. She is the author of eight books, both fiction and nonfiction, most of them about jazz (one is about klezmer). She is a former news writer and columnist, and was the editor of a business journal and a lifestyle magazine in Northeast Pennsylvania. She is currently working on a new murder mystery about a jazz saxophone player from Russia.

Burke launched her international jazz blog, in 2016, which has hundreds of personal interviews with megastars from the jazz community, as well as up-and-coming musicians.

Brooklyn-born, she has lived in six different states in the eastern half of the US, but most of all, loves being near the ocean and is ecstatic to call Virginia Beach her new home.
