Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
Fresh out of college, I headed for corporate America. However, though I enjoyed considerable success, after ten years, it was clear that this was not where I belonged. I wanted to write—and I wanted to get away, to shake free of the corporate mindset and to test my limits.

After six-months and nearly 20,000 miles of joy and adventure, I returned home to build a new career around my passions of writing, history, travel, and food. Today, I am a successful freelance writer, world traveler, and culinary historian. I love sharing my adventures with others and letting people know that dreams can come true if one is willing to pay the price.

My book, Waltzing Australia, is a vivid recounting of those amazing six months in Australia, at the point where I changed my career and life. It is a story about change and finding out who you are. But above all, it is about Australia: the history, legends and art, both European and Aboriginal; the beauty, the challenge, the people, the land.

Cynthia, I'd be delighted to highlight you and your book on my blog.  My daughter spent a year working and study in New Zealand, just a short hop away from Australia and loves that part of the world.  To start the dialogue email me
