Meet the Author

A little about myself: My father wrote Coffee, Tea or Me? when I was seven years old. The book made the New York Times bestseller list for an entire year. I wasn't allowed to tell anyone that my father wrote it. He was the ghostwriter for two fictitious stewardesses, Trudy Baker and Rachel Jones. I was so embarrassed by Coffee, Tea or Me? I wasn't quite sure why it was a big secret that my father wrote the book or, even more confusing, why my dad was pretending to be a woman, or worse, two women but I was very happy to keep the secret.

Today, I'm very proud that my dad wrote it. Not only did I become a writer but, perhaps inspired by Coffee, Tea or Me?, I fell in love with the travel industry and have made my living as a travel writer and editor, crisscrossing the globe on assignment for almost two decades.

I have written many lifestyle articles for newspapers, magazines and websites, including travelchannel.com, travelmuse.com, nearsay.com, salon.com, Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, New England Travel, Woman's Day, The New York Daily News, The New York Times, New York Post, New York Daily News, Boston Herald, Parents, Parenting and Sesame Street Parents. And, I am the author and collaborating author of several books, non-fiction and fiction. I wrote The Unofficial Guide to New England and New York with Kids (Wiley & Sons), which was on Barnes and Noble's Top Ten Family Travel bestseller list. I am also the author of New York City With Kids, New York City Made Easy, Best of Boston with Kids and Teens, Family-Friendly Restaurants in NYC, and others. In addition, I am a contributing author to Peter Walsh's How to Organize Just About Anything. In fiction, I co-authored several Murder, She Wrote books. My blogs include www.placestoseewithyourkidsbeforetheydontwanttobeseenwithyou.com, www.bigappledippedincaramel.com and www.catcherinthesky.com.
