Starting her career in Chicago in the 1980s, Dianne McCann has spent much of her 25-plus years in publishing on the editorial staff of a variety of magazines, from covering telecommunications to graduate-level mathematics. Her most recent position was editor of the local parenting magazine, Baltimore’s Child, a stint lasting nearly 12 years. During this time, the magazine was honored with a Best of Baltimore award from Baltimore magazine in 2010. Since leaving Baltimore’s Child in 2012, Dianne has focused on working independently, building her base of freelance editing and writing work, all with an eye toward covering one of her favorite topics — travel. This past year, while writing for the Examiner.com, Dianne focused on eco-tourism in the Baltimore area. It is now with great pleasure she writes for the Baltimore Post-Examiner — a weekly blog covering cruises and travel…helpful, practical information to hopefully nurture the wanderlust in each of us…Having raised two children who are now on journeys of their own, Dianne currently lives in Towson with her dog Monty, a charming, shaggy bulldog mix.
