As co-author of the best-selling In an Instant, Lee Woodruff garnered critical acclaim for the compelling and humorous chronicle of her family’s journey to recovery following her husband Bob’s roadside bomb injury in Iraq. Appearing together on national television and radio since the February 2007 publication of their book, the couple has helped put a face on the serious issue of traumatic brain injury among returning Iraq War veterans, as well as the millions of Americans who live with this often invisible but life-changing affliction.
They have founded the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which has given away more than $33 million to assist wounded service members and their families. To date the foundation has raised more than $20 million to help veterans successfully reintegrate into their communities and receive critical long-term care.
Woodruff is currently a contributing reporter for CBS This Morning and has been a contributor for Good Morning America. Her best-selling book Perfectly Imperfect—A Life in Progress, was followed by her first novel, Those We Love Most, a New York Times best-seller and winner of the Washington Irving Book Award for fiction.
A freelance writer, she has penned numerous magazine articles about her family and parenting. She ran her own marketing consulting business for sixteen years after leaving the public relations–agency world in New York, Washington, DC, and San Francisco.
Woodruff lives in Westchester County, New York, with her husband and four children.
