I have hiked Arizona’s trails and driven its mainlines and backroads from the deserts to the mountains to the wondrous depths of the Grand Canyon . . .

This obsession with my home state and the greater Southwest has served me well while researching, photographing, and writing several books in the Moon Travel Guides series published by Berkeley-based Avalon Travel, a subsidiary of Hachette Livre.

(As of February 2017 I am working on a new edition of Moon Arizona and Grand Canyon, scheduled for publication in 2018.)
