Best-selling writer Mary Kay Andrews (pen name of writer Kathy Hogan Trocheck) has found a large and enthusiastic following both in Savannah and internationally with her humorous page-turning stories with Southern-flavored themes. Save the Date, her newest novel, entertains us with the drama of a missing bride and the Savannah florist who must find her.
A native of St. Petersburg, Florida, Andrews started her professional journalism career in Savannah where she covered the real-life murder trials that were the basis of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. A former reporter for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, she wrote ten critically acclaimed mysteries including the Callahan Garrity mystery series, published under her real name. In 2002 she switched to the Andrews pen name and published Savannah Blues. One critic aptly described Andrews’ writing “as Southern as mint juleps and ice tea and just as sweet and tangy.”
Andrews and her husband, Tom, have two grown children and divide their time between a restored 1926 Craftsman bungalow in Atlanta and a rambling old beach house on Tybee Island.
