Elaine Woo



Elaine Woo is a Los Angeles native who wrote for two of her hometown dailies: the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, which closed in 1989, and the Los Angeles Times. Now a freelance writer and editor, she has filled a wide variety of assignments, profiling the living and, as an obit writer, the dead; covering Malibu landslides and troubled public schools; and even reporting the sights from a window washer’s perch at the top of a 73-story office tower.
