Lee St. John started writing publically in 1970 for her hometown paper by delivering the School News events from the only high school in the county. Then majoring in Public Relations/Journalism in college, Lee St. John again wrote for the newspaper during her summer breaks. After she married and stayed home with her children, she was asked again to write a part-time society column. Impressed by her writing skills, her publisher mentioned to her that one day she should write a book.
And here it is: SHE’S A KEEPER! Cockamamie Memoirs from a Hot Southern Mess.
This is not Lee’s first attempt at publishing a book. Her self-published book is entitled, SHE’S A KEEPER! Funny Teacher Stories from Real Southern Classrooms. With the stigma now removed for independent publishing. Lee began publishing her own material two years ago and then a conventional publisher found her marketing her book and reached out. Before, staying abreast of marketing (website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, speaking engagements, radio, and newspaper, etc.), formatting, choosing a cover, editing (a lot!), pricing, distributing, and just finding time to write, took up all her time. Now, a traditional publisher is supporting her and although she still is involved in decision making and leg work, there are others doing the same to help her so she spends more time with her humor writing.
A Georgia Peach, Lee St. John has been married to her Southern gentleman for 35 years. They have two Millennial sons and a tater-tot-looking white Schnauzer named OBie.CONNECT WITH LEE!
