About the Author Kristin Winet

Kristin Winet is an award-winning writer, editor, teacher, and novice shutterbug currently based in Tucson, Arizona. In addition to teaching writing classes and working on her dissertation on travel discourse and digital media at the University of Arizona, she’s been featured both online and in print and has partnered with a number of international tourism bureaus and global media companies. She recently took home a bronze in the 2013 NATJA Awards for profiling a mahout in Thailand and a silver in the 2013 Solas Awards for her piece on searching for betelnut princesses in Taiwan. Say the words culture, adventure, good food, good wine, or good company, and she’s packed (with a good book in tow, no less).
