Carolyn B. Heller traveled more than 5,000 miles (8,200 kilometers) across the highways and back roads of western Canada while researching Moon Vancouver and the Canadian Rockies Road Trip. A full-time travel and food writer since the mid-1990s, Carolyn is the author of four Moon travel guides and she has contributed to more than 50 other travel and restaurant guides.

She’s been road-tripping since she was a child, and she has continued that road trip tradition with her own daughters, notably in 2003, when she and her then-10-year-old twins traveled across the United States on an epic six-week, mother-daughter road trip, where they got drenched at Niagara Falls, toured museums of SPAM and Jell-O, camped at Yellowstone National Park, and ate mashed potatoes with gravy in 14 states.

A graduate of Brown University, Carolyn lives with her husband in Vancouver, British Columbia, where you can often find her running on the beach, practicing her storytelling skills, or sampling a new Chinese restaurant.
