Welcome. I'm a Seattle-based travel writer and author. I spent four years traveling to Italy to write MURDER IN ITALY (Penguin), my award-winning book on the Amanda Knox case. Now, I've plunged back into freelance writing, specializing in opinion pieces, travel and adventure stories. I kayak, ski, mountain climb, hike, and love luscious food and wine. I've been everywhere from Guatemala to remotest British Columbia (by kayak) in the past two years. Africa is up next. I've loved it since I was eight years old and have een to Kenya, Morocco, and Tunisia.

I'm especially proud of these two recent clips:

Newest project: I teach in Writers.com's Travel Writing Master Class with Amanda Castleman, Frank Bures, Anna Melville-James, Tom Swick and Jim Thomsen. I also teach food writing and have a new class coming up soon.
