“I’m a recovering newspaper journalist,” Chris Cox liked to say when he described his earlier career, during which he spent 16 years at the Boston Herald, and another three years at a paper in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In 2005 he gave up his full-time newspaper job to relaunch himself as a freelance magazine travel writer and novelist. It was about that time when Chris sent his first query letter to Audubon, pitching a story on one of the world’s top birders, who had racked up a record “life list” of more than 6,700 species.
