Her work has also appeared in several other books on journalism: The Complete Book of Feature Writing; Writing: Strategies for All Disciplines; and Feature Writing for Newspapers and Magazines. Steinbach did radio commentary for several years, as well as a call-in talk show for WBAL Radio in Baltimore, MD. In 1994, she was a commentator for WJZ-TV in Baltimore.
