I write for a wide variety of magazines and newspapers. My non-fiction book, Homeward Bound: Why Women Are Embracing the New Domesticity, was published by Simon & Schuster in May 2013.
In the past, I’ve worked as a newspaper reporter, an ambulance driver, a magazine fact-checker, a waitress in several Japanese restaurants, and a guidebook author for the Lonely Planet travel book series.
Here are a few of my recent/favorite stories, below:
The Zombie King (long, and behind a paywall. But worth it, I promise! There’s cannibalism, S&M, Gertrude Stein, monkeys and more).
I write regularly about innovation for Smithsonian. See my archived stories here.
