Jackie Dishner, writer, speaker and mountain bike rider, is the former editor of a McGraw-Hill construction magazine in Phoenix. She moved nationally into writing about Arizona travel in 1999. That’s when her story featuring a former Hollywood stunt man from Yuma appeared in Arizona Highways.
You can find more of her work there, as well as in several AAA magazines, This Old House, Fast Company, The Writer, various trade and custom publications. Writing professionally for more than 20 years, she also covers design, green living, and the healing arts. Backroads & Byways of Arizona, released last October, is her first book.
Jackie also writes about her other passion–the lessons she learned from the seat of her mountain bike–at her self-development blog, BIKE WITH JACKIE.
