Beth Braden is a contributing writer for TravelChannel.com and circus ringleader at her home in Knoxville, Tennessee. She grew up in the country but is much more suited to the suburbs. She enjoys bizarre museums, exploring new cities, befriending people in line at amusement parks, and old episodes of Unsolved Mysteries with Robert Stack. She is on the fence about the existence of aliens. In her spare time, Beth listens to true crime and mystery podcasts while quilting or doing other crafty things.
