Biography and Work
A little background.
I’ve been writing for 15 years for folks like Esquire, National Geographic Traveler, Better Homes & Gardens, Budget Travel, Bon Appetit, Parents, Midwest Living, Iowa Outdoors, the Chicago Tribune, the St. Paul Pioneer-Press, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and (the dearly departed) Gourmet and many others.
My first book, Running Away to Home, a roots travel journey back to the Croatian mountain village of my ancestors, received the Best Nonfiction of 2011 Award from the American Society of Journalists and Authors, and the Emerging Iowa Author Award in 2012.
Water is my first release with local iconoclast RAYGUN. Every minute of the process has been all unicorns and rainbows.
