My name is Chelsi Arnold and I was born and raised in Texas, (And yes, like most Texans I tend to be a little biased to the fact that everything is bigger and better in Texas) – but hey, it ain’t bragging if it’s true ;) I grew up in a single-stop-light town where I spent most of my time playing sports and going to rodeos. Throughout my life, my goals and dreams have changed, but having a close relationship with my friends and family and my love for creativity has always remained. I am a firm believer that anything is possible, as long as you work hard and have determination; there is nothing you cannot accomplish.

Author and humorist known for her Southern Charm, Lee St. John writes for the Newnan Times-Herald in Georgia – the same newspaper where her idol, Lewis Grizzard started. A popular stand-up comedienne and lecturer, she has published 5 books/2 audio books in the SHE’S A KEEPER! series. A Georgia Peach by birth and an adopted Alabama Camellia, Lee splits her time and humor between her Georgia newspaper column and as a radio and TV-contributor for the Charter Cable Network in Alabama. While most of Lee’s roguish memoirs are inspired by the family funnies of Erma Bombeck, by the down-South flavor of humorist Lewis Grizzard, by the honesty of Ali Wentworth’s entertaining memoirs, and by the inappropriate frisky behaviors of any SEINFELD episode, she also expresses sentimental anecdotes. This she-devil with a halo, Southern Belle who doesn’t play by the rules, and prankster setting her next trap, inflicts her mayhem but she does it with a heart. The mementos found in her closet, attic, basement, and even her former school classroom unleash her secrets about mothers, husbands, former boyfriends, children, friends, jobs, families, students, and more. Lee St. John is found on every dang social media outlet. She continues to rank #1 on Amazon’s Best Sellers under Humor & Entertainment Essays Kindle e-books short reads. Married for 34 years, Lee and her husband have 2 grown sons, a tater-tot dog, OBIE, and a kitty, BOO. Oh, and Lee LOVES to laugh.
