Wynne Everett is a Chicago-based independent editor and writer. A native of central Ohio, she grew up eating vegetables from her grandparents' farm and beef bought on-the-hoof at the county fair. She is now a vegetarian. Her 25-year career in newspapers has included stints as a courthouse bureau reporter, education writer, city editor, business editor and food section contributor. In 2008, Wynne blogged her experience as a Chicago locavore -- a project that made her a devoted fan of Wisconsin raw-milk cheese and farm-fresh pastured eggs.
