HILARY DAVIDSON
 
 
 

Hilary’s claim that she’ll do anything for a story is something she’s had a few opportunities to regret. It sounds great until she finds herself diving for shipwrecks in the icy waters of the St. Lawrence River or swimming with sharks in the Bahamas.


Her work as a travel writer has allowed her to visit places such as Peru, Easter Island, and Israel. Ironically, Hilary has spent much of her time writing books about her hometown, Toronto, and her adopted city, New York, where she’s lived since October 2001. She’s written 18 nonfiction books (17 of them for Frommer’s Travel Guides). In 2008, she launched the Gluten-Free Guidebook, a website for people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance. (Hilary was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2004).


A few examples of her work:


“10 of the World’s Most Scenic Cemeteries” (CNN Travel, 2013)


“Brick and Mortar: Best Indie Bookstores” (CNN Travel, 2013)


“Five Favourite Books” (Chatelaine, 2012)
