Christy Karras

Christy Karras has been a professional travel writer for ten years, writing for clients ranging from the Alaska Airlines magazine to the London Sunday Times. She is the author or co-author of seven books, including Motorcycle Touring in the Pacific Northwest, Motorcycle Touring in the Southwest; More than Petticoats: Remarkable Utah Women, and Scenic Driving: Utah.

She has also been a magazine and website editor, including a stint as the assistant editor for Yahoo Travel. She is a regular contributor to Seattle Times, writing about travel, culture, and the arts. She frequently writes stories that combine adventure with creature comforts such as dining and wine.

Her life has been more interesting than she ever intended. She was a White House intern during the Clinton administration, won $64,000 on the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” game show, and met the Queen of England in a scene later portrayed in the movie “The Queen” (filmmakers did not consult her). When she is not on the road, she lives in Seattle with her husband, Bill, and their elderly dog.
