Jonathan Diamond

Policy researcher, writer and editor

Jonathan Diamond is a policy researcher, writer, and editor living in Los Angeles.

A career that started as a business reporter in his native Philadelphia evolved into a passion for writing and books that took him to Manhattan, where he spent a decade creating books with writers, primarily of non-fiction. Clients ranged from New York Yankees manager Joe Torre to Civil War historian Shelby Foote, from National Magazine Award winner Jim Thornton to New York Times photojournalist Joao Silva and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Greg Marinovich.

Lured to Los Angeles to start the new millennium, he was a managing editor at a business paper for a number of years before being drawn into the world of political communications, serving as a spokesman for one of city’s citywide elected officials.

The author of a novel, Shudder of Thought, he also maintains the photoblogs Random Images and Love That Holga. His photography is also available through PhotoShelter.
