Christine Buckley’s travels have taken her to five continents and taught her to shear sheep, cultivate rice, sail without a G.P.S. and edit a state-run newspaper with a straight face. Her LA Weekly cover story on human rights activist Aaron Cohen was a 2008 LA Press Club and Maggie Award finalist and led to the book Slave Hunter: One Man’s Quest to Free Victims of Human Trafficking, co-written with Cohen (Simon & Schuster Entertainment). Christine has contributed to National Public Radio, The New York Times and Current TV, among others. Her reporting has also won her an Associated Press award. She is working on a second book based on an essay recently published in Best Women's Travel Writing 2010:
