Anna Dubrovsky has lived in more than a dozen cities on three continents and has explored countless others. She has cycled the western coast of Ireland, hang-glided over Rio, motorcycled up a mountain in the Dominican Republic, scuba-dived in Costa Rica, and camped along the Appalachian Trail. She has marveled at the Taj Mahal, prayed at the Western Wall, and danced in Havana. But Pennsylvania keeps pulling her back.
Anna first set foot in Pennsylvania when her seventh-grade class ventured from Cleveland to Philadelphia, belting Whitney Houston ballads all the way. Her family relocated to Pittsburgh a few years later, and Anna’s first driver’s license was a Pennsylvania one. She left the Keystone State to study journalism at Northwestern University but returned to intern at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and The Morning Call of Allentown, where she covered The Great Allentown Fair from the perspective of a sheep. Upon graduating, she came back to Pennsylvania to write about state government and politics for the York Daily Record.
In the years that followed, she enjoyed stints as a political journalist in New York City, a financial journalist in New Jersey and Los Angeles, and a student of yoga in India. Then she returned to Pennsylvania once again and became a wife, mother, and Moon author. You can find her online at anywherebutacubicle.com.
