I also teach travel writing at conferences and colleges.
In 1995 and 1999, I won the Lowell Thomas Award given by the Society of American Travel Writers for excellence in adventure travel journalism. My memoir, Places in Time was named Best Travel Book by the North American Travel Journalists Association and named Best Travel Narrative from the Society of American Travel Writers. Now Places in Time has been re-printed by the legendary Capra Press in an enlarged second edition
