After wandering around the South for a while after getting my MFA at Chatham University in Pittsburgh, I finally settled in Asheville. I began to volunteer at the Smith McDowell House with the Western North Carolina Historical Association, and this got me all wrapped up in the history of Asheville. My first book – Historical Inns of Asheville, came out in 2013. I hope you enjoy this blog! And please send me a note if you have anything to add –
