Maralyn Dennis Hill is known as The Epicurean Explorer. She says she was born to travel and tell the tale, from local and simple to Michelin Star. Maralyn is always on the lookout for luxury experiences that exceed expectations with spas, accommodations, dining, and destinations.
As executive editor of Luxe Beat Magazine and a professional travel and culinary writer, being a guest on a monthly radio show with her husband, and contributing to numerous publications, print and online, she reaches several million on a continual basis, domestically and internationally.
Maralyn’s years of writing travel incentive programs and meeting planning expanded her talent for digging below the surface for the unusual. She thrives on discovering different cultures and customs.
She is always ready to explore different flavors of various cultures and share their tale. People she meets along the way are the best part.
Maralyn has also co-authored three books and hosted a Time-Warner Cable TV Show for four years.
She is past president of the International Food Wine & Travel Writers Association (12-2008 to 12-2012) and served on the board for eight years. Maralyn also is a member of the Society of American Travel Writers and the Society of Professional Journalists.
Specialties: Culinary tourism, luxury and spas, but loves all travel. If along the way there is a boutique that calls her name, Maralyn likes to check it out. Food judging is enjoyable and she still savors using her conference, incentive, and meeting planning skills.
To quote the author, “ I’ve written incentive programs, mission statements, and coached individuals on writing and marketing their successful projects. That is why I enjoy serving on the boards of Luxe Beat Magazine, Curran Pendleton Press and Stella Jane Marketing. I also thrive on traveling, exploring and writing with my husband.”
