Now, as a travel writer and family travel expert, I draw on my personal experiences and industry knowledge to help other families plan their vacations. I've written about travel for online publications including: NileGuide.com, 10Best USA Today, Trip Advisor, Family Vacation Critic, and TravelChannel.com.
In my book, I share some of that inside knowledge with you.
