Betsy is an acclaimed author and longtime freelancer
who has a lot of thoughts about what to eat - and why.
Her book, The Dinner Diaries: Raising Whole Wheat Kids in a White Bread World (Algonquin 2008), received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, was Family Circle's Book Pick of the Month, the Progressive Book Club's Staff Pick, and was featured in Everyday with Rachael Ray, Boston Globe and The Washington Post. Betsy has spoken about it regionally and nationally, in person and on the radio.
She has been called “hilarious,” “talented,” “smart,” “edgy,” “fun,” and “one of my favorite Boston writers,” not to mention, “laugh out loud funny” by The Washington Post, The Boston Globe and NPR. Her writing includes food features, profiles, health articles, restaurant reviews, travel pieces, essays, and lifestyle stories for NPR, Wondertime, Cookie, Entrepreneur, Natural Health, Epicurious.com, The Boston Globe, Boston magazine, and online city guides Sidewalk and CitySearch.
Betsy graduated with honors from Brown in 1988 and received her Master's from Tufts' Fletcher School in 2014. She lives near Boston with her husband and is always available to talk to her two now-adult kids, who call more often than she ever dared hope.
