About Jeryl Brunner

For freelance writer and journalist Jeryl Brunner, a good interview is like a tango complex, soulful, fiery, exciting and illuminating. She has been performing this dance for more than a decade, contributing to such publications as "National Geographic Traveler," "ForbesTraveler.com, Four Seasons," "Gotham," "People," "Us Weekly," "Hamptons," "Brides," "New York" and "In Style," where she worked on staff for nine years. The intrepid Jeryl Brunner (as she was dubbed by "In Style") is known for her prowess in securing quotes from celebs and is regularly called upon to get famous people to reveal themselves. For example "PW Booklife.com," the consumer publication from "Publisher s Weekly," hired her to ask notable authors, actors and directors like Frank McCourt, Wynton Marsalis, David Cronenberg and Ruth Reichl about a book that changed their life. Brunner has written cover stories about Chris Noth, Dylan McDermott and Julianna Margulies for "Travel Savvy" and "Hamptons." She profiled notable New Yorkers for "Gotham, "including Le Cirque owner, SirioMaccioni, Anthony Bourdain, Vanity Fair writerAmy Fine Collins, famed nightclub owner Amy Sacco, noted chocolatier Jacques Torres, and has authored travel pieces for bridal magazines and ForbesTraveler.com. For several years, she had a weekly advice column for "Woman s World" magazine, in which she asked celebrities and other luminaries to answer readers questions. For example, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger advised on creating a winning PTA campaign strategy and Wes Craven counseled on how to sit through a scary movie.Brunner joined "In Style" in its infancy in 1994, working as a reporter. In 1999, she was promoted to staff correspondent, where she wrote items for nearly every section of the magazine. One of her regular columns was On the Phone, where she gave a celebrity a cell phone and called the star at random during the week. She also edited and wrote Lookback, the final page of the magazine, which featured vintage photos of celebrities. Every month, she had the challenge of writing a complete story about a star at the time the picture was taken, in just 180 words. A veteran party reporter, Brunner wrote more than 40 party stories at "In Style" and has covered events for "Us Weekly," "People" and "Life
