When she isn't writing or traveling with her family, Phyllis Karas teaches writing at Boston University School of journalism.  She has published two mob related collaborations: Street Soldier, with a Whitey Bulger low level associate, Eddie Macenzie, and the second, the New York Times best seller, Brutal, with Bulger deputy and closest adviser, Kevin Weeks. Her first collaboration, The Onassis Women, garnered a million dollar advance and was the subject of a dateline NBC story.  Karas was also a Boston stringer for People Magazine.
