Edie Jarolim

Edie Jarolim earned her Ph.D. in English and American literature from NYU and worked as a guidebook editor at Simon & Schuster (Frommer's) and Random House (Fodor’s) in New York and Rough Guides in London before moving to Tucson, Arizona, to become a freelance writer (or, as her mother might have put it, “You left your good job in New York to go where? To do what?).

She has authored five books: three travel guides, one dog guide, and one memoir. This last, "Getting Naked for Money: An Accidental Travel Writer Reveals All," talks about writing the first four. Her hundreds of articles have appeared in publications ranging from Art + Antiques and Sunset to The New York Times Book Review, National Geographic Traveler and The Wall Street Journal. Besides travel and dogs, one of Edie's specialties is food. She is the Contributing Dining Editor for Tucson Guide and writes regularly for Edible Baja Arizona; also, her great uncle was Sigmund Freud's butcher, a fact discussed in detail on her "genealogy, psychology and meat" blog, Freud's Butcher.
