It's rare when you can mutter the words "novelist," "Jeopardy contestant" and "FierceHealthFinance" in the same breath. But Ron Shinkman, editor of FierceHealthFinance, makes it all possible. Besides writing a novel that one Amazon.com reviewer deemed a "wry thriller," Ron once won $16,000 as a Jeopardy contestant!
No doubt Ron amassed his plot ideas--not to mention mounds of miscellaneous trivia--during nearly two decades as a journalist. You may remember Ron from his years as the Los Angeles Bureau Chief of Modern Healthcare, where he focused on corporate governance issues. Or maybe you recognize his byline from the Los Angeles Business Journal, where he covered the healthcare and insurance beats. He has also written for HealthLeaders Media, Trustee magazine, and Payer & Providers. He can be reached at email@example.com. Follow him @FierceHealth on Twitter and find him on LinkedIn.
