Susan McKee is an independent scholar and freelance journalist specializing in history, culture and travel. She is Editor-At-Large for the U.S. edition of Business Traveler and a regular columnist for Road and Travel. Her writings also appear in JaxFax, Chicago SunTimes, Chicago Tribune, Indianapolis Star, Cincinnati Enquirer, Venice Gondolier-Sun, a half-dozen daily and weekly publications of 21st Century Newspapers (Michigan), AAA Living, Travel Savvy, Kentucky Monthly, Journey and many more newspapers, magazines and ezines, including Bonjour Paris. Susan honed her craft as a general assignment reporter for more than a decade at a major metropolitan daily newspaper before fleeing corporate journalism for the peripatetic life of a freelancer. Although a third-generation Chicagoan (where she attended both Northwestern University and the Art Institute of Chicago), she graduated from the University of California in Los Angeles, snagged one master's degree at Indiana University and another at Purdue University. She makes Indianapolis her home base. Book projects have included some scholarly works as well as a AAA guide to Chicago and NorthStar Intelliguides for both Indianapolis and Indiana. Her blogs have far too few entries, but she'll be working on that!
