....If you're looking for an expert's view on Orlando, its theme parks, its nightlife or Central/South Florida in general...

I have two guidebooks published by Frommer's and parent company Wiley Publishing.

Frommer's Irreverent Guide to WDW, 5th edition, written by Michelle SnowThe first, released in September 2004, is Frommer's Irreverent Guide to WDW, 5th edition. I revised and rewrote the entire book, with the exception of the maps.

This is not your normal guidebook. Rather than stuffy pages filled with the same old information, this guide is more like having a trusted friend guide you around. I tell you the good, the bad and the "just plain stay away" for all things dealing with Walt Disney World and the city of Orlando. I also include a healthy coverage of the other area attractions, including Universal Studios Florida, Sea World and Discovery Cove. To download .pdf samples from this book, please click here.

"I am planning a trip to Disney World and just purchased your book, Irreverent Guide to WDW & Orlando, yesterday. You've packed it with a lot of helpful information, and I really like your writing style."

Dummies Guide to WDW/Orlando 2005, written by Michelle SnowThe second, released in November 2004, is the WDW/Orlando For Dummies 2005 (for Frommer's parent company, Wiley). I revised and rewrote the entire book, with the exception of the maps.

Part of the illustrous "For Dummies" line of guides, I have written a basic primer for anyone planning a trip to Orlando and its many theme parks, most notably Walt Disney World. I even include a kid's-eye-view of visiting the theme parks, for those traveling with a family or school group.

"This was our first trip to Walt Disney World and the For Dummies book spelled everything out so completely that we had a wonderful time." -- Becky N./Wisconsin

From visiting Walt Disney World on a shoestring budget to living in the lap of Orlando luxury, I can deliver stories and photos that will grab your reader's attention.


Dummies Guide to WDW/Orlando 2005, written by Michelle SnowI also contributed to the 2006 edition of DK Eyewitness Guide to Florida, released in March 2006, authoring sections on Miami entertainment and nightlife.

I also authored sections on statewide shopping, including chapters on malls and specialty shopping, and I detailed wedding planning statewide, including the perfect honeymoon spots.

"Some friends and I went down to Miami for the weekend and we had a blast with the clubs and music venues you recommended!" -- Rhonda H./Florida


....I rode out four hurricanes in 2004...

And both the Orlando Sentinel (daily newspaper) and WESH-TV (Orlando's NBC affiliate) used my photos and quotes in their online hurricane coverage.

....My photos have illustrated other writer's articles...

....Everyone has an opinion. Mine have appeared online here:
