The Travel Belles have posted a lovely blog about Eugenia Price – a historical fiction author who lived nearly half her life on St. Simons Island. She wrote a series of novels based on historical events on the island as well. It all started with a side trip:
A 1961 book-signing tour with her friend Joyce Blackburn proved that a turning point can be both literal and figurative. At a road junction on the Georgia coast the women were intrigued by a nearby island they saw on a map. On a whim they turned off to investigate. The four-mile drive over the bridge to Saint Simons Island was to change their lives forever.
