Atlanta native Sarah Gleim is an award-winning writer and editor. After working for almost 10 years as a magazine staff editor, she returned to school to get a second degree in culinary arts so she could combine her two biggest passions: food and writing. That was 10 years ago and she has been covering the food scene in the South ever since. She also has written numerous travel, home decor, interior design and lifestyle articles, and loves profiling the country's most exciting chefs and food trends. She is published in CNN.com, Atlanta magazine, The Atlantan, Jezebel, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, Sea Island Life, and Charlotte magazine, and has produced and edited hundreds of articles for TLC.com, HowStuffWorks.com and Discovery.com, where she was a full-time editor and travel podcaster for two years.
She also served as a senior editor for Forbes Travel Guide where she managed the day to day editorial for the channel on Forbes.com, and was in charge of the site's Tastemakers—renowned chefs, interior designers, sommeliers and hoteliers that contributed to the site's community of travel experts. She has produced six cookbooks for Time Inc. and the iconic Southern Living and Cooking Light brands, and is a full-time freelance writer specializing in food, travel and lifestyle. She is also currently updating her first book, 100 Things To Do In Atlanta Before You Die, which was published in May 2014.
When she’s not writing, Sarah enjoys dining at some of her favorite restaurants, including the Brick Store Pub, Leon's Full Service, Haru Ichiban Japanese and The Iberian Pig. She also loves traveling, photography and history, and watching live music. Most of all she adores two crazy hounds—her English coonhound, Redford, and her blue-tick beagle, Daisy Hill.
She is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Atlanta Press Club and the Travel Writers Association.
