Award-winning author and travel writer Thomas C. Wilmer started his journalism career as a copy boy for the West Coast edition of The Wall Street Journal while attending college in the San Francisco Bay area. He’s logged over two million miles in his travels across the globe, from Morocco to China, up to the Arctic Circle and down to South Africa. Although Wilmer’s writing niche is upscale international travel, his home base in Morro Bay, California, has allowed him ample opportunity to explore the California Coast for the past twenty-five years.
Wilmer’s writings on world-wide and California coastal destinations have appeared in numerous lifestyle magazines. His newspaper travel features have appeared across North America on the Knight Ridder Wire Service, including Toronto, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Savannah, Duluth, St. Paul, Pittsburgh, Providence, Charleston, Annapolis, Corpus Christi, and Tampa. Wilmer’s radio travel show, Audiolog (awarded “Best Radio Show” by Outdoor Writers Association of California in 2007) has aired over NPR affiliate stations KCBX, KSBX and KNBX for more than twenty years.
In 2007 he was awarded the Henry Lawson Travel Writing Award Grand Prize by Tourism Australia/Qantas for the best North American media feature about Australia as a travel destination. He was also awarded “Best Magazine Feature” 2nd place in 2007 by Outdoor Writers Association of California.
Wilmer is a member of the (San Francisco) Bay Area Travel Writers’ Board of Directors, a member of International Food, Wine and Travel Writers Association, and Outdoor Writers Association of California.
