Publication News and Updates


It’s been a very busy past few months! Below is my latest publication update.


  • BELIZE CAYES for Moon Guides: I am approaching my manuscript deadline and will be in full writing and revising mode for the >> next two weeks.


  • CNN Travel: Guadeloupe Islands – 15 gorgeous reasons to go [Photo Essay]


  • AFAR: Jamaica Country Guide. In addition to the niche Destination Guide (due out in March/April), I was commissioned to write a complete, digital Jamaica Country Guide. I will share both links once published. I was also selected as AFAR’s local Jamaica expert. I’m due for a Jamrock visit very soon – I think I’ve earned a vacation!
  • Jamaica’s Best Beach Destinations E-book: I still plan on completing my first e-book/guidebook on Jamaica by the end of summer 2014.

I hope you enjoy all the above articles! For more updates and travel tips, join me on Facebook.
