Meet Carmel

consultingCarmel L. Mooney is a travel writer, Life Coach, columnist, author, and radio talk show host. Her hundreds of print bylines and photographs appear in national and international magazines and newspapers, and more recently, in online publications as well.

She teaches seminars on writing and publishing at writers’ conferences and colleges throughout the country.

When Carmel isn’t at her computer you’ll find her traveling about 25 times a year.

A certified Road Trip addict, Carmel has taken two fairly recent cross country (and back ) road trips with her kids. On the last one, they were gone over three months covering a total of 11,600 miles. (and Carmel did all the driving)

Through her print columns, Carmel covers travel, dining, and entertainment at dude ranches, bed and breakfasts, resorts, festivals, theme parks, and on cruises. For nearly 20 years, Carmel also co-hosted the radio talk show, On Tour with Dave and Carmel, which aired weekly on KJAY 1430 AM in Sacramento. On this informative and entertaining show, Carmel covered travel destinations, dining reviews, entertainment, authors, celebrities, and more.

While Carmel writes frequently about destinations all over the world, she does write extensively about California as well. She is a fourth generation Californian. It’s no surprise that exploration runs deep in her veins as Daniel Boone was her great uncle, eight generations back. Carmel loves to annually visit and write about the regions of her genealogy in North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia.

Carmel has appeared regularly on Sacramento & Co, News10 TV, as a travel expert.
