My Story

Freedom. Creativity. Contemplation. Mine is the story of a woman discovering herself in the world and finding the language to articulate and share the experience. 

An unlikely wanderer

In 1998, with no qualifications other than a traveler’s eye and a knack for telling a tale, I traded a successful academic career for the wild blue yonder and a new life as an independent travel writer and photographer.

From a handful of assignments to hundreds of adventures spanning the globe, I've turned a passion for exploration into a creative life inspired by a commitment to freedom.   

Together with my husband, Hank Barone, a young-adult, action-adventure author, I am currently enjoying extended travel in Latin America while I write my first book, "I Could Live Here."
