Author Bio


Molly Koeneman is the author of travel essays that pack readers into her carry-on as she travels the world, mostly alone and mostly without a clue what she’s going to do next. Since 2015, she has traveled to +25 countries across six continents while working Chicago office hours. The trending term is “Digital Nomad.” She’s gone scuba diving with hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos, followed the 2019 Women’s World Cup around France, took a university-level literature class in Athens, learned to surf in Morocco and hiked the Inca Trail; she’s traveled with best friends and has made new best friends; she’s fallen in love with places, faces and herself.

When not traveling, stalking her own Instagram feed or writing, Molly practices yoga, meditation and pie-making. She reviews books on Goodreads and Amazon.
