Born in West Virginia and raised in Florida, Summer Land graduated magna cum laude from Emerson College in Boston in 2008 where she studied Marketing. After embarking on a Working Holiday in Australia and spending two ski seasons in Park City, Utah, Summer moved to Australia in 2010 where she settled down in Mudgee, NSW and began writing.
Inspired by Sloane Crosley, Chelsea Handler and David Sedaris, Summer first started blogging, but quickly learned she had a book inside of her. Summerlandish: Do As I Say, Not As I Did, was published in 2013, which prompted numerous writers’ and readers’ festival appearances across Australia. Today, Land writes a column in the Mudgee Guardian and is a regular contributor to The Tot. Her writing work has also been featured in Elle Australia, Cosmopolitan Australian, Mamamia and Women’s Health. I Now Pronounce You Husband and Expat is her second book.
