As a contributing writer to TravelChannel.com, I was the site’s NYC expert. I have also written essays for Working Mother magazine, salon.com, Sesame Street Parents and The Boston Globe. I have also blogged for clients including The Otesaga Resort in Cooperstown, New York.
As a travel editor for ten years at Bridal Guide, a national glossy bridal magazine in NYC, I assigned, wrote and edited hundreds of articles for one of the largest travel sections in publishing that revolved around honeymoons and destination weddings. I traveled to amazing upscale, five-star resorts and destinations around the globe. I still write about honeymoons and destination weddings for several bridal magazines.
I am also a bestselling author. I have written several travel guidebooks, including New York City with Kids, New York City Made Easy, New York City with Kids, as well as a popular children’s baseball novel, Catcher in the Sky. And, I am a co-author of several Murder, She Wrote novels. I also collaborated on How to Organize Just About Everything with Peter Walsh; I wrote 80 mini-chapters.
I got my start in journalism as in investigative reporter intern in Washington, DC with muckraker/syndicated columnist Jack Anderson. It was an awesome, life-changing experience.
