About Beth Rubin
About the Author Beth Rubin moved to Washington, D.C., as a student -- before there was a Kennedy Center, Watergate, or Metrorail. Since then she has survived 10 presidential administrations while escorting her two kids, numerous relatives and friends, and the occasional alien around Washington. While enduring Potomac Fever and D.C. traffic for close to 40 years, Beth has come to know the nation's capital intimately, warts and all. In the early '90s she parlayed her knowledge of the city into Frommer's Washington, D.C. With Kids, now in its 5th edition. Beth's features, on a variety of subjects, have appeared in Frommer's Dollarwise Traveler; the Washington Post; Roll Call, Ski Resort, and Washington Dance View magazines; and numerous other Washington, D.C. area publications. She thinks her marriage to Washington, D.C. For Dummies is a match made in heaven. If the book is a hit, she's thinking about buying the Washington Monument and turning it into an all-night delicatessen. When not chasing her mouse, Beth can be found roaming the District with paper and pen in hand. She lives in Annapolis, Maryland, 35 miles by motorcade from the White House.
