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 to assist wounded service members and their families. To date, the foundation has raised more than $40 million to help veterans successfully reintegrate into their communities and receive critical long-term care.
Woodruff has been a contributing reporter for “CBS This Morning” and “Good Morning America.” Her best-selling book “Perfectly Imperfect – A Life in Progress,” was followed by her first novel “Those We Love Most,” which became a New York Times best-seller and won the Washington Irving Book Award for fiction.
A freelance writer, Woodruff has penned numerous magazine articles about her family and parenting. She ran her own marketing consulting business for 16 years after leaving the PR agency world in New York, Washington DC and San Francisco.
At present, Woodruff lives in Westchester County, New York, with her husband and four children.
