BELOW THE 23RD LATITUDE
I have spent the better part of two and a half decades working as a correspondent, bureau chief and editor below the 23rd Parallel North, mostly in Mexico and Cuba, but also throughout Central America, in Haiti and in parts of South America.
A small collection of my hundreds of published pieces: from a moving first-person look at my relationship with my mentally ill brother, and a lively story about returning to Cuba after six years away, to spot news and features from around Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as the United Nations.
I am an experienced public speaker and have given interviews to public television and radio on my experiences working in Cuba. I am also now experimenting with online video that can be embedded in tweets,
After a long and distinguished career in Latin America I am wrapping up my first book, a memoir called “Cast Adrift: Memories of a Cold Warrior’s Daughter.” During my time in the region, I have been a bureau chief, news editor, correspondent and supervisory editor on the regional desk.
