Annie Graves is a travel writer with deep roots in New England, even as she is also drawn across the Atlantic, toward the irresistible diversity of Europe (all that pastry…).
As a regular contributor to Yankee magazine, this native New Englander likes to swerve off the map and explore the unexpected, embracing our weathered clapboards, pointy church steeples, idiosyncratic cities, and stubborn fortitude with a familiarity born of countless winters, but also looking beyond and beneath the surface to find and convey the subtle poetry of our small, distinctive region of the Northeast.

As a homeowner who is one quick step ahead of major repairs, she is also keenly attuned to the beauty of New England architecture, and contributes home and garden stories to Yankee magazine. See House and Garden
For more than 10 years, she has written regularly about natural health alternatives, including herbs, homeopathy, and various healing modalities. See Health
