I specialize in adventure travel, luxury travel, skiing and golf, and excel at creating imaginative work while meeting tight deadlines. I was About.com's Guide to Adventure Travel (www.adventuretravel.about.com ) for 7 1/2 years, and co-author of Frommer's 500 Adrenaline Adventures. I am co-author (with my husband) of the Colorado & Denver Day Trips Travel Guide for iPhone, iPad and Android Smartphones. My background includes 20plus years of writing editorial and advertorial articles for national and regional magazines, Web sites, and newspapers including Travel+Leisure, The New York Times, Texas Monthly, Denver Magazine, Colorado Avid Golfer and Dallas Morning News.
