kirsten hubbard

A travel writer and young adult author, Kirsten has danced in a Serbian nightclub (self-consciously), been slapped in the face by a Thai monkey, discovered all manner of alarming insects in hostel beds (including tarantulas), and greeted the sunrise from atop the highest temple at Guatemala’s Tikal ruins. She prefers backpacks over suitcases, takes sketchbooks on every trip, and has served as the Guide to Central America Travel for About.com since 2006. When she’s not off wandering, she lives in San Diego, California.

She is also obsessed with baby sloths.

She is represented by Michelle Andelman at Regal Literary. You can contact Kirsten at kirstenhubbard (at) gmail (dot) com.
