About me

After years as one of the top tennis writers in the country, Marcia Frost is now devoting most of her time to writing about travel, wine, spirits, celebrities and food.

Travel has always been a lifelong passion and a chance meeting with an former college friend led her into the world of Wine and Spirits Travel. Marcia is looking forward to discovering more locations around the world (and re-discovering places she previously visited).

Marcia has freelanced for many on and offline for such publications, including The Daily Meal, About.com (now Trip Savy), Pennyhoarder, Beat, Matador, Cocktails and Joints, Urban Expressions, Girls Getaway, Yahoo!, Cruise Voyant, Worn Luggage, Get in Media, Travel Hoppers and Niche Media (Michigan Avenue,Ocean Drive, Hamptons, Gotham, Los Angeles Confidential, Capitol File, Philadelphia Style and Aspen Peak Magazines).

You can also see Marcia Frost on CI Living, the afternoon lifestyle show on the CBS affiliate in Central Illinois, where she does monthly travel segments.
