About Me:
I'm a journalist and award-winning writer, who moved back to the U.S. after living in France (and mostly Paris) for 10 years. I've written for such print venues as Rolling Stone, GQ, InStyle, Self, American Way, Premiere, and Mirabella. Online, besides my regular blogging for The Huffington Post I have also written for Salon.com, Vogue.com, and others. My prime journalistic topics are travel, culture, politics, and people. I have been interviewed on Air America, and my online commentary has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, U.S. News & World Report, The Hotline, Der Spiegel, BuzzFlash, The Satirical Political Report, Daily Kos, AlterNet, Democratic Underground, PoynterOnline, and USA Today Online. During its coverage of President Obamas inauguration, BET (Black Entertainment Television) used my video of election night in Paris. My work has also been recognized by my peers for its excellence: During the presidential campaign,www.betharnold.comwas named Political Blog of the Week on Blog Catalog. I was also included in one of the most prestigious books on the whole blogging phenomenon, The Huffington Post Complete Guide to Blogging (Simon & Schuster, 2008). While I have wholeheartedly made the leap to New Media, I also continue to write for print. In 2007, I contributed a chapter on Living in France to the book "Retirement Without Borders" (Scribner, 2008). At present, I'm putting the finishing touches on a nonfiction book called "Picking the Bones," a memoir about family, identity, and loss. I chronicled my and my husbands great adventure of selling our house in Arkansas, putting everything in storage, and uprooting ourselves to France) into an online series (and book) I call "Jours of Our Lives." I also put myself in internet rehab on a beautiful Greek island for a month and wrote "28 days without the internet." And, for a little more info: In a previous life, I earned a Master of Social Work (MSW) and was a therapist in a community mental health center as well as a consultant. I was a finalist for a Bunting Fellowship at Radcliffe (for a novel) and a semi-finalist for a Nicholl Fellowship (screenplay) through the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. I produced the website for my husbands book "Chasing Matisse," for which I was an early blogger recording my point of view of our journey across France chasing art, artists, a creative life, and a fresh way to see the world.
