Michelle Singletary is a nationally syndicated columnist for The Washington Post. Her award-winning column, “The Color of Money,” is carried in over 100 newspapers and provides insight into the world of personal finance.

The column won Best in Business for a series that ran in 2007, received an award from the Society of American Business Editors and was even nominated for a Pulitzer just a year after its first appearance in The Post.

She is the author of three books, “The 21 Day Financial Fast: Your Path to Financial Peace and Free,” published by Zondervan, a HarperCollins company; “Spend Well, Live Rich: How to Live Well With the Money You Have” (Random House) and “Your Money and Your Man: How You and Prince Charming Can Spend Well and Live Rich” (Random House).

In 2006 “Your Money and Your Man” was a finalist for “Books for a Better Life,” which honors the best self-improvement books of the year. This highly regarded award promotes the importance of a large and fast-growing segment in the book publishing business.

The judges wrote, “Michelle Singletary’s work illustrates a range of writing that’s both approachable and explanatory.”

Michelle has also written for the flagship “O Magazine,” and even replaced Suze Orman as the personal finance columnist for the quarterly spinoff, “O at Home Magazine.”
