About Edie Jarolim

Edie Jarolim has worn many hats -- not counting the sombrero she donned on a certain one--margarita--too--many night... She has a Ph.D. in American literature from New York University (which explains the occasional highbrow literary allusion) and was a senior editor at Frommer's travel guides in New York before being lured by the warm sun and endless vistas -- not to mention the inexpensive real estate -- to Tucson, Arizona, in 1992. She has since written about the Southwest and Mexico for a variety of national publications, ranging from the America West Airlines Magazine, Art & Antiques, and Brides to National Geographic Traveler, the New York Times Book Review, and the Wall Street Journal. In addition to Arizona For Dummies, she authored Frommer's San Antonio and Austin and the Complete Idiot's Travel Guide to Mexico's Beach Resorts.
