We Meet At Last

Welcome. I'm an award-winning journalist, travel writer and author of MURDER IN ITALY, about the Amanda Knox case.

Based in Seattle, I'm obsessed with Italy, Mexico, Africa, the Americas, India and, well, anywhere you want to send me. I can find value in the bleakest of foreign towns. I write about everything from outdoor adventure to true crime, women's issues, business, food and wine.

Catch my stories in Slate, The New York Times, MSN Travel, Art & Antiques, The Chicago Tribune and Alaska Airlines Magazine, plus Seal Press and Traveler's Tales anthologies. I've appeared on CNN, MSNBC, BBC, CBC, Italian TV and CNN's "Crimes of the Century, Amanda Knox." I blog at seattlepi.comWays To Escape and Italyest.

Check me out on Wikipedia. I'm proud to be a Byliner author, a former MSN producer, and magazine and newspaper editor. I love to kayak, ski, climb, hike. I appreciate good food and wine. Born in Spokane, WA., I'm a coastie in Seattle,  not to mention a wife and mom.  I'm a 2012 and 2013 top writer for Quora. You can find me on Linked In and Wikipedia. I have a master's degree from the University of Oregon School of Journalism.
