About Stephanie Faul

A true product of American hybrid vigour, Stephanie Faul is half Czech immigrant, half Connecticut Yankee, with a German-speaking grandmother and a Canadian cousin, and a penchant for African music, Vietnamese food, Italian footwear, Siamese cats, and English novels. A freelance writer, editor and journalist she lives in Washington D.C. Growing up in the nation's capital has given her a unique perspective on the foibles and quirks of her compatriots and has confirmed her belief in Bismarck's remark that laws are like sausages: it's better not to see them being made. In many ways she feels typically American - curious, inventive, outspoken and practical - but her atypical attributes include a distaste for shopping and television, and a marked preference for walking instead of driving which in her neighbourhood is usually faster anyway. Her ambition is to visit all 50 U.S. states. She has only a dozen left to go, but at a walking pace this could take a while.
