Recently married and settling in to a new home in Brooklyn, Mark Morewitz feels something is missing from his life. He is intrigued when his neighbors introduce him to Laurie, the charismatic entrepreneur from Long Island helping them earn enough money to buy and renovate their huge home. Soon the Long-Island fairy-godmother gives Mark an opportunity to invest in her high-return deals and then invites him to work at her event-planning business. Along the way they become friends. As Mark begins making serious money, his friends and family want to get in on the action too. Within a year, most of the people in his life have put a substantial amount of their money in Laurie's hands. After he returns from a trip to San Francisco, Laurie shocks Mark with an announcement that changes their relationship forever. Layer by layer, Mark begins to find out the whole devastating truth. He eventually turns to the FBI for help as his American dream turns into a nightmare. Revealing the inside story behind the headline-making federal case, "The Ponzi Princess" is a true tale with a timeless message about the power of greed and deception.

About Mark Morewitz

Mark Morewitz earned his master of social work at San Francisco State University, and he has worked in public health administration, policy, and research since 1991-except for two regrettable years when he was associated with Laurie Schneider. He currently resides in San Francisco with his partner. In his memoir "The Ponzi Princess," he tells the heartbreaking story of how he was befriended, betrayed, and robbed of everything he holds dear by a skilled con artist.
