Anne Z. Cooke, a travel and adventure writer, covers the world from digs in Los Angeles and Colorado. A regular with the Tribune News Service, a wire service with more than 400 national and international print and online clients, her stories appear in travel and lifestyle sections everywhere. A magazine writer and columnist as well, she has been blogging for the Huffington Post since late 2010. She looks for the back story, covering the good, the bad and the strange. Famously curious, her interests range from wildlife conservation and environmental issues to cultural life, family travel, history, deluxe resorts, hidden wonders and everything offbeat. Thanks to world-hopping parents, she's been on the go since kindergarten, city touring, museum-loitering, temple-climbing, horseback riding, spa-lingering, volcano-watching, river rafting, backpacking and float-plane fishing ever since. Her byline has appeared in print and on the internet in publications including National Geographic Traveler, Westways, Backpacker, MotorHome, Travel 50 & Beyond, Miami Herald, Chicago Sun-Times, Dallas Morning News, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Philadelphia Inquirer, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
