Anne Z. Cooke, a travel and adventure writer, covers the world from digs in Los Angeles and the Rocky Mountains. A regular writer for the Tribune News Service, a wire service with more than 1,000 national and international print and online publications and subscribers, her reports and stories appear in travel, feature and lifestyle sections. A magazine writer and columnist, 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, outdoor adventure and offbeat wonders.
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 both in Tribune News Service publications and in 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.
