Theresa Dowell Blackinton was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, and spent her childhood visiting the state’s attractions with her parents and three brothers. She left Kentucky to attend college at Rice University in Houston, Texas, and has been on the move ever since—living in Freiburg, Germany; Athens, Greece; Washington DC; and Durham, North Carolina; and spending time in more than 50 countries. But she still considers the Bluegrass State home.
Research for this book took Theresa to the state’s deepest cave and its highest point, with stops at just about everywhere in between. In the process, she was reminded of Kentucky’s interesting history and awesome natural beauty—but what she most enjoyed was getting to interact with her home state’s warm and welcoming people, all of whom had interesting stories to tell.
Theresa is also the author of Moon Take a Hike Washington DC and has written for multiple newspapers and magazines.
