Alexandra Zayas won the 2013 Selden Ring Award for Investigative Reporting, the Livingston Award for Young Journalists and the Casey Medal and was a finalist in the Pulitzer Prize for her three-part series “In God’s Name,” which uncovered abuse at unlicensed religious children’s homes across Florida. A reporter on the Tampa Bay Times’ investigations team, Zayas graduated from the University of Miami and has written for the Miami Herald and the Star Tribune in Minneapolis. She joined the Times in 2005. Her favorite stories have immersed her in the worlds of self-proclaimed vampires, war-scarred veterans and players on both sides of the law.

These are her stories.
