Anne Butler is a former editor of Country Roads and has contributed articles for the magazine from the very beginning (Yikes! Can she be THAT old??). The author of more than a dozen books and hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles, she specializes in extolling the virtues of South Louisiana's unique cultural heritage and oddball characters, cuisine and even crime. She has a BA in English from Sweet Briar College in Virginia, MA in English from Humboldt State University in California, but she's really just a glorified storyteller. She lives in St. Francisville where she offers tours and B&B at her historic home, Butler Greenwood Plantation.
