About Me:
A former staff business reporter and junior magazine editor, I've been a freelance writer and editor since 1992. I've written for more than 80 publications and websites in Canada, the U.S. and elsewhere, and I've spoken about travel and other topics on TVOntario, CBC Radio's “Cross-Country Checkup,” “CTV Morning Live” and other programs. The 13 books I've written or co-authored include Wanderlust: A Social History of Travel. For my website, OttawaRoadTrips.com, I write about travel in Eastern Ontario, West Quebec and upstate New York (and beyond).
