About Cheryl Farr Leas

Cheryl Farr Leas may live on the mainland, but she's a Hawaii girl at heart. She fell in love with Diamond Head, aloha wear, and mai tais in 1994, and has had trouble staying away ever since. Whenever she's not in the islands -- and until she can figure out a way to trade her Brooklyn co-op for a Lanikai beach house -- she and her husband, Rob, call New York City home. Before embarking on a writing career, Cheryl served as senior editor at Macmillan Travel (now Wiley), where she edited the Frommer's Hawaii travel guides for the better part of the '90s. Now happy to be a globetrotting freelancer, Cheryl also authors the Frommer's New York City travel guides.
