Growing up, I wanted to be the female version of Indiana Jones: Travel the world and uncover ancient mysteries, like the physics behind the pyramids or who painted the Nazca lines. Somehow along the way I ended up studying nutrition, TV production and literature. Talk about mixing things up!
For the past decade, freelance writing has taken me to the dusty streets of Phnom Penh, the manicured gardens of Tokyo and the cobbled alleyways of Prague. I’ve lived in five countries on three continents and taken my pets along to each one of them. They’ve probably accumulated more flight mileage than most of my friends!
It’s probably no surprise that I love to travel, but I also enjoy less “typical” things, such as winter and snow, old libraries and creepy abandoned buildings. When I’m not writing, I spend time picking up stray animals, reading obscure little books in foreign languages, and planning crazy stunts like parachuting and hiking in Ojmjakon (you have to look it up to understand).
