Deb has been a professional writer for about 30 years, and she recently found a paper written in the 5th grade showcasing her family vacation to Lincoln's Birthplace. So maybe she should add a few years to that number. She is the assistant editor of Kentucky Monthly Magazine which celebrates the people, places, events and culture of the Commonwealth. She has written five books, covering travel and history in Kentucky, as well as two travel apps. As a freelance writer, she has written countless feature stories for newspapers and magazines.  While Kentucky is her area of expertise, she loves to visit America's biggest cities, national parks and anything Disney-related.

    What's your favorite mode of transportation? Why?

    I love to travel by car, but I don’t really like to drive. I’m selfish I guess, but I just love to look out the window. I don’t want to miss a thing along the way.

    What's your most exciting or surprising travel experience?

    Traveling through Kentucky’s small towns never ceases to amaze me. Whether I’m at a tiny diner, or asking someone for directions, people will come out of the woodwork to tell you what you should order, or where you should go, or what you should see. It is a wonderful thing to see how much everyone loves their home state and just wants you to experience it all.

    Do you prefer traveling alone or with a companion? Why?

    Of course I love to travel with my husband and kids. We’ve had some exciting adventures, as well as made memories and inside jokes that only we will laugh about for years to come. But traveling alone has its advantages. It forces you out of your comfort zone. I tend to talk to people around me and ask more questions than I would if I were with family or friends, which results in gaining more information and sometimes even new friends.

    What's your most exciting or surprising travel experience?

    One time I was in Hollywood and their were sales people trying to get me on a bus to see the homes of the stars. I had no interest in doing this, but, on a whim, I signed up. Well, I sure had a surprise coming my way. Our knowledgeable guide took us all over the area and showed us so much more than just the fences, hedges and gates of movie star’s homes. It was so fun that now I sign up for a tour every time I am there.
