Hello! I'm the author of Safari (Workman, 2012), a New York Times bestseller, and the upcoming Ocean (Workman, 2014) and well as another yet-to-be-named Workman title featuring one of my favorite subjects ever - cats. Currently, I'm a freelance writer and editor. I've recently published content for The New York Times, DailyWorth.com. and the AARP Bulletin. In the past decade, Iíve worked as a staff writer for National Geographic magazine and the National Affairs Reporter for Readerís Digest, and as an executive editor with AARP monitoring the caregiving/community/books beat with my stable of wonderful writers, creating content for print publications and the website. Before my "written word" life, in my twenties, I worked in television news, for ABC News, Fox News, PBS and for CBS News in New York on a fellowship.
I live in Alexandria, Virginia, right outside Washington, D.C. with my husband, two children, and two obese and charming rescue cats.
What I'm doing now:
Helping edit an exciting website: MpalaLive.org, which take you right to a watering hole in Kenya. Here, you can watch over 90 African animals eat, drink, sleep, and interact, courtesy of three live cams and read details about and listen to each animal. (My favorite: the sound the camel makes).
I'm also writing a Page-A-Day calendar for Workman Publishing on (shocking) cats!
