About Lylah M. Alphonse
When I'm awake, I'm a Senior Editor at Yahoo.com's Shine, where I write daily for Yahoo! Shine and for Yahoo.com's front page about news, trends, health, parenting, pop culture, and more. I launched and curated Yahoo!'s "Women in Politics" section in 2012, was part of Yahoo! News' election-night team, and have a proven track record of writing articles that grab readers and get them commenting. Click here to view my Yahoo! archive.
From 1994 to 2010, I was an editor at The Boston Globe, where I also freelanced as a writer for several departments: I’ve written hard news stories (9/11 coverage from Europe, shuttle explosion from India), travel trend stories (group travel, destination pieces, packing tips), hard and soft features (schoolchildren and beer in Belgium, in-depth interviews with and profiles of local celebrities and up-and-coming innovators), restaurant reviews, home and office design features, book reviews, family-friendly features, and product reviews.
