Favorite Links

When I'm not writing, buying airline tickets, editing photos, playing with my cat, or finishing off a case of Red Bull, I'm cruising the internet doing research. These are just a few of my favorite sites on travel, writers' resources, photography, women travelers, and food. There are loads of great sites popping up every day so if you recommend any I've missed, please let me know.

Happy cyber-hunting!
