Moon Guides Author Spotlight
Carolyn B. Heller
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. Her articles have appeared in Forbes Travel, Viator Travel, the Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, Perceptive Travel, FamilyFun, Real Weddings, and many other publications.
Carolyn is an avid traveler and passionate food lover who has eaten on the streets, in fine restaurants, and everywhere in between in more than 40 countries. 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.
