Writer. Mariner. Coffee drinker. Leaver-of-town.

Greetings – and welcome to kimbrownseely.com. I’m an award-winning writer, a contributing editor for Virtuoso Life magazine, a sailor, an empty nester, a gardener, and a road-tripper. I was named a 2016 Lowell Thomas Travel Journalist of the Year. I’ve written about far-flung places for National Geographic Adventure, Travel & Leisure, Town & Country, Outside, Coastal Living, and Sunset.

My first book, UNCHARTED, an adventure memoir about a voyage from one life chapter to another, will be published by Sasquatch/Penguin Random House in fall 2019.

Before moving to the Northwest I spent a decade as a senior editor at Travel & Leisure. I was one of the founding editors at Microsoft’s online adventure magazine, Mungo Park, as well as travel books editor at Amazon.
