The daughter of a Scottish New Zealander and an Arabic-Cajun, Jessica Maxwell has the whole wide world in her blood. True to her pedigree, she is a widely published international adventure writer, author and photographer with a special emphasis on food, conservation, women’s journeys and spiritual transformation. The youngest writer to pen Esquire’s Travel column (1985 – 1997), she created and wrote Audubon’s True Nature in-the-field conservation column (1992 – 1997) before authoring travel books on flyfishing, golf and women’s adventure. She is a longtime contributor to the LIFE section of Forbes, and regular presence in AARP The Magazine, Gourmet, and More. A former California beach girl, she earned a degree in Magazine Journalism at the University of Oregon–including spending her junior year in Aix-en-Provence–and now lives in Western Oregon, with her trial attorney husband Tom “Mr. Quotable” Andersen at Gaiety Hill House, a historic Georgian manor where she happily serves their guests afternoon tea and grand feasts, especially when her beloved stepsons, Ben and Eli, are in town...unless she’s out stalking giant Norwegian grouse or chasing away evil spirits with a Himalayan Rinpoche.
