About the author

Jon Blackwell was an editor at the Asbury Park Press and a reporter at the Trentonian, where he helped edit and wrote most of the paper’s award-winning 100 years of history series.  He won awards for reporting on crime (the police shooting of a 14-year-old girl) and politics (a wild mayoral election).

Since 2000, he has been a copy editor at the New York Post, where he helps write all those wacky tabloid headlines – among then “Moo Goo Guy Ran,” about a fugitive Chinese food deliveryman, and “Bimbo Summit,” for the night when Britney, Paris and Linsday partied together. 

He was a contributor to The Encyclopedia of New Jersey. “Notorious New Jersey” is his first book.
