She has written extensively about crime, politics, government bureaucracy, terrorism, and both man-made and natural disasters. A wanderer at heart, Acton loves to travel, and has thus far visited forty-one states and forty-three countries, with the rest of the world on her bucket list. She and her husband share a blended family that includes a daughter, three sons, four grandchildren, and a very spoiled dog, Louie.
