Marianne C. Bohr, freelance writer and travel blogger for the Huffington Post, married her high school sweetheart and travel partner. Three of her travel essays received 2015 Solas Awards by travel publisher, Travelers’ Tales, honoring excellence in travel writing. Her first book, Gap Year Girl: A Baby Boomer Adventure Across 21 Countries, was published by She Writes Press last fall. Gap Year Girl was named a finalist in both the IndieFab Book of the Year Awards, and the Next Generation Indie Book Awards. Kirkus Reviews said about her book, “Bohr shines…providing glimpses of herself as a whole person, not simply a traveler. Gap Year Girl is an excellent choice…a travelogue filled with historic places, but its personal stories provide its highlights.” With their two grown children, she follows her own advice and travels at every opportunity. Marianne lives in Park City, UT, where after decades in publishing, and then many years teaching middle school French, she skis, ice skates, hikes, and writes.
