Jeanine Kitchel's ongoing love of Mexico led her to the Yucatan in 1983 and slightly more than a decade later, she left San Francisco for a relaxed lifestyle in Puerto Morelos, a fishing village on the Quintana Roo coast.
Kitchel writes about Mexico, the Maya and the Yucatan. Her Tales from the Yucatan series can be found on planeta.com and she has contributed to a variety of newspapers and websites, including The Miami Herald, three Mexico City papers, and Fodor's Travel Guide Cancun/Riviera Maya edition.
Her first book, a travel memoir, Where the Sky is Born: Living in the Land of the Maya, is available on Kindle and Itunes. Her second book, Maya 2012 Revealed, Demystifying the Prophecy, comes out in May, and brings a realistic tone to the furor caused by December 21 2012, with emphasis on who are the Maya, the code, their calendar system, Maya astronomy and the night sky, 2012ology, the collapse of their culture and the prophecy as seen by the Maya elders.
