Anne Butler

author-4

Anne Butler is the author of twenty books, some more substantial than others, and hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles; she is also in great demand as the local obituary writer of choice since she can make anybody sound good. She also runs a B&B on her historic family plantation near St. Francisville but is retiring from the odious task of giving house tours, having had just about all the joys of dealing with the traveling American public that she can stand, so she'll have more time to write and maybe even get out of the house once in awhile.
