I was 14 years old the first time I came to Charleston and from that moment on; I was in love with the city.  Leaving town, riding in the backseat of my parent’s station wagon and reading “Charleston” by Alexandra Ripley, I decided then and there I was going to live in Charleston, someday.  (I know the book is fiction, but it IS historical fiction so at least I was learning a little something.)      Years later, all grown up and after many, many, weekend get- a -ways in Charleston, we decided it would be less expensive for us to move here from Atlanta than to continue our significant support for the hotels and B&B’s in this lovely city.  (By the way they are excellent)

So here we are living in Charleston and I am spending my days guiding guests and locals in our fair city to the society, scoundrels and conflicts that define Historic Charleston.  We have a little tradition in my house – when I come home and say “I love living here”, it’s been a great day.  (That happens a lot)

I hope that you enjoy my blog and some of the fun nuances of Charleston.  Should you ever need an experienced guide with a heartfelt passion to introduce you to this wonderful city, please contact me.

  4. Lee Ann;
    If I you are interested in covering an article concerning the Revolutionary War era, check the article “The Disappearance of the Prison ship Packhorse” at Maybe, some local historian has stumbled onto some forgotten facts that will help solve the mystery of what happened to this ship of American POW’s.
    Thanks. Love the Charleston area. Lived there five years in the 1970s.

  5. Lee Ann,
    Thank you for the incredibly educational and entertaining tour of your charming city this summer! We all left with a new respect for Charleston and its history. Look for a copy of Now Let Me Fly in the mail soon. It’s a small token of our appreciation for sharing your knowledge and passion with my family.
