"I met Dennis when I was an editor at Marie Claire Magazine. I had read one of his profiles in another magazine and I was so impressed with it I tracked him down and cold called him. That was the start of a great working relationship, and also a great friendship. Over the course of many years I assigned Dennis dozens of interviews.
Being able to interview someone takes a specific set of skills, and I don’t know anyone better at it then Dennis. He has an uncanny ability to connect with people and make them feel at ease. He asks the right questions at the right time, he is compassionate and understanding, and he is truly interested in getting to the core of who a person is. What’s more, Dennis is able to do it whether he is interviewing an A-level actor or a real person. He just knows how to find that common ground, which inspires trust on the interviewees part, which is one of the reasons Dennis is able to get people to open up in such a natural and organic way. I have worked with hundreds of writers over my many years as an editor and Dennis is the best there is.
