For more than two decades Margaret Littman has been lucky enough to be paid to research her interests. A prolific freelance editor and writer, she has covered health, pet-friendly travel, gardening, standup paddling, startup businesses and everything in between, but her love in travel. She's the author of a number of guidebooks to help other people take to the road and explore what's hidden in their own backyards. A native of Boise, Idaho, Margaret now lives in Nashville, Tenn., where she writes about what makes Music City so special. She also spends time in Chicago, Gulf Shores, Ala., and wherever else her assignments take her.
