Mickey Goodman has written more than 700 bylined articles for scores of publications including Reuters International, People, This Old House, Veranda, Southern Living, Womansday.com, Countryliving.com, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Canadian Architecture & Design, Atlanta Magazine, Points North, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, CURE (American Cancer Society), PEDS (Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta), The Parkinson Report, Women’s Wear Daily, and others. She is a columnist for Simply Buckhead, an upscale Atlanta magazine.
Ghostwriting seemed a natural addition to traditional journalism. It allowed Goodman to tell stories in depth, a passion she developed in the first grade when she wrote a story about Plassie, a favorite doll with a terrible case of the chicken pox.
Her first book, “Nine Lives of a Marriage – a Curious Journey,” with Holocaust survivor, Eva Friedlander, continues to sell well on Amazon.com and in museum bookstores. It was the inspiration for two documentaries produced by the Breman Holocaust Museum and Jewish Family Services. Both have been widely viewed.
Her second memoir with Dick Mueller, founder of GMS, entitled “You Can’t Go Wrong Doing the Right Thing” will be published in 2017 by a Canadian press. Her third memoir “Drinking, Driving and Drugs: Secrets of a Serial Entrepreneur,” with Don Panoz is agented by Roger Williams of the Roger Williams Agency. She also contributed to the anthology, “Loss is Inevitable, Grief is Natural, Healing is Gradual.”
Mickey is currently working on a memoir and series of children’s books with a prominent Atlanta businessman.
