Margaret Shakespeare writes about archaeology, agriculture,
design, hospitality, baseball, music, wildlife, the environment,
cultural history, remote destinations and more — often entwining
several of her interests to tell compelling stories. Her work has
been published by The New York Times, Wine and Spirits, Discover,
Wildlife Conservation, Opera News, leading university alumni
magazines and many other national consumer and trade
publications. She is a long-time contributor to Landscape
Architecture Magazine and the author of several books. Her
passport has been stamped at over a hundred foreign borders. She
lives in New York City and on the North Fork of Long Island in a
quirky 200-year-old farmhouse.
