Jessica Maxwell is a nationally acclaimed adventure-travel writer and the author of books on flyfishing, golf, travel and natural medicine. In October 2009, Simon and Schuster/Atria/Beyond Words published her first spiritual adventure book, Roll Around Heaven, which went on to win two national gold book awards. Jessica's work has been included in more than two dozen travel anthologies, including Bill Bryson's Best American Travel Writing 2000. She was the youngest regular contributor to Esquire's Travel column (1985 to 1997), and created Audubon's in-the-field conservation column, True Nature. On Forbes.com you can flyfish for piranha in the Amazon with her, join her on a Norwegian moose hunt, cruise Bangkok's River of Kings in a converted rice boat or go fishing with her -- and wild tigers! -- in the Himalayas. But, she says, the mystical experiences in Roll Around Heaven make her earthbound adventures look like "chopped piranha liver." "And if a complete spiritual klutz can end up rolling around heaven right here on earth, anybody can!" In Roll Around Heaven she shows you how.
