Hi! I’m Kimberley.  

Welcome to my internet home.

I am a freelance writer, author, traveler, lifelong Francophile, and champagne lover with a peripatetic soul.

My bylines have appeared in National Geographic Traveler, Virtuoso Life, the New York Times, Robb Report, Ciao Bambino, CN Traveler, AARP, The Best Women’s Travel Writing and many others.

In my spare time, I wrote a Michelin guidebook about Brussels, Belgium, where I lived for six years. I also wrote two guidebooks on San Francisco, my current home. My first book, Walnut Wine & Truffle Groves, a culinary travel book about the people and food of the Dordogne region of France, was the 2012 recipient of the Lowell Thomas Award for Travel Book of the Year, given by the Society of American Travel Writers Foundation. During the pandemic, my brother and I worked on a self-published project called  Quartraits: Portrait of a Community in Quarantine , a collection of gorgeous portraits and poignant stories of life during lockdown.

Now enough about me…how about a little more about me?

I love meeting new people and the outdoors—especially walking, hiking, and sailing. Indoors you can find me cooking and riding my Peleton. I am a perpetual student of the French language and find the best teacher is travel to France. I never tire of travel or watching sunsets, and I love the smell of lavender. I prefer actual books and magazines though I am learning to love the e-versions . I am a twin.

As well as being a writer, I am a mom, a wife, an aunt, a niece, a sister, a daughter, and a friend to many and I try to give 100 percent to each of these roles.
