Susan McKee: Scholar, Editor, Travel Writer
Susan McKee made her first appearance on GoNOMAD with a story about a sumptuous spa in Mauritius and followed up with a fascinating visit to Armenia. She has since written stories about Santa Catarina, Brazil and her hometown, Chicago.
Here's how she describes herself on her website, SusanMcKee.com:
Susan McKee is an independent scholar and freelance journalist specializing in history, culture and travel.
She writes for a wide variety of publications, both print and online.

Under pseudonyms, she writes for several publications, including Road Trips for Gardeners, and Road Trips for Wine.
She's the culinary travel editor of iStopOver Magazine, was named the the U.S./Canada correspondent for JaxFax (a magazine for travel agents), has served as Editor-At-Large for the U.S. edition of Business Traveler, ghostwrote more than a year's worth of consumer newsletters at Kayak.com, and now writes daily for LivingSocial.
Her writings also have appeared in many newspapers, magazines and ezines, including Road and Travel and Bonjour Paris.
Susan honed her craft as a general assignment reporter for more than a decade at a major metropolitan daily newspaper before fleeing corporate journalism for the peripatetic life of a freelancer.
Although a third-generation Chicagoan (where she attended both Northwestern University and the Art Institute of Chicago), she graduated from the University of California in Los Angeles, snagged one master's degree at Indiana University and another at Purdue University. She makes Indianapolis her home base.
