A freelance writer, journalist, author, and teacher, Stephane Schorow has made a reputation as a lively speaker about off-beat historical and cultural topics, mostly focusing on Boston's more nefarious history. Using images and video clips and telling tales that are often stranger than fiction, Stephanie takes her audiences on journeys into a past that few people know. For example, how many folks remember walking along Washington Street, right smack in the middle of Boston, and seeing rows of strip clubs proclaiming the best in exotic dancing? Yet from the 1960s to the 1980s, Boston's "combat zone" was an officially designated adult playground. In her newest book, Inside the Combat Zone: The Stripped Down Story of Boston’s Most Notorious Neighborhood (Union Park Press, 2017), Stephanie recounts the stories that made the Zone infamous.
Stephanie is the author, co-author or editor of seven nonfiction books, including Drinking Boston: A History of the City and Its Spirits, published by Union Park Press in 2012, and, with co-author Beverly Ford, The Boston Mob Guide: Hit Men, Hoodlums & Hideouts, published in December 2011, by the History Press. She has also written on the tragic Cocoanut Grove fire, the Boston Harbor Islands and the "Crime of the Century," the 1950 Brink's robbery.
She teaches professional writing at Regis College and other area colleges. A former reporter for the Boston Herald and Associated Press, she now writes restaurant reviews for the Boston Globe North section. She once attended a stripping class for a feature for the Boston Herald.
