Cedar Burnett is a Seattle-based writer, mother, and professional rule-breaker. She once had lunch with Kenny Rogers and is unnaturally proud that Al Jazeera America paid her to go to Hempfest and write about it. Her work has also appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Salon.com, The Associated Press, USA Today, msnbc.com, yahoo.com, Huffington Post, CBS.com, Fox News, Fodor's, Alaska Airlines magazine, and ABCNews.com, among other publications. She spent a summer in Boston wearing adult diapers for ulcerative colitis (then wrote a book about it). More at cedarburnett.com.
