Hi! I’m Kimberley.  

Welcome to my internet home!

I am a freelance travel writer, author, champagne lover, and die-hard Francophile. Oui!

My travel and lifestyle articles have appeared in the New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, Virtuoso Life, Saturday Evening Post,  AARP, Hemispheres, Ciao Bambino, CN Traveler, The Best Women’s Travel Writing and many other publications.

I am the author two guidebooks to San Francisco, as well as Walnut Wine & Truffle Groves, a culinary travel book about the people and food of the Dordogne region of France. The book was the GOLD Lowell Thomas Award winner in 2012, given by the Society of American Travel Writers Foundation.


In 2021, my brother and I collaborated on a self-published project called  Quartraits: Portrait of a Community in Quarantine , a collection of portraits and poignant stories of life during lockdown in Los Angeles. It was a 2022 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist.

I’m now hard at work on children’s picture books,  the first of which will be published in 2024 by MB Publishing.

When I’m not traveling and writing, I love to sail, cook, read, hike, ride my Peloton, and belly laugh with my husband , daughter, and besties.

Let’s work together!
