Lee St. John

Georgia Author                                 Southern Humorist - Essays


Lee St. John shares her southern humor in several Georgia newspapers as a columnist, with audiences, and in her book series  She's A Keeper - Cockamamie Memoirs from a Southern Hot Mess.  

My name is Lee St. John. I’m an unapologetic rogue Southern Belle. A high-jinx expert and mayhem confessor. With all the cotillion classes and etiquette lessons, I was taught manners and how to behave. But all those years of learning and acting with utmost decorum won’t stop me from saying what needs to be said. Are you ready to hear what I have to say about former Presidents, the Mafia, famous people—dead and alive—as well as my own friends and family? Well, hold on to your pantyhose. It’s going to get rough.

She's A Keeper: Funny Teacher Stories from a Real Southern Classroom

My name is Lee St. John and I am ratting out what really happens in teachers' classrooms. Current teachers, retired teachers, and even former pupils are going to thank you for what seems unbelievable - but yet they are all true - stories from decades of student (and teacher) antics. In these short essays I am spilling the beans.  What are they going to do? Fire me?

She's A Keeper: Confessions from a Southern Girl's Closet

Lee St. is a rogue Southern Belle, a high-jinx expert, and mayhem confessor. You'll see. Twisted, uproarious, revealing, delicious, quirky, surprising, warm, humorous, heartfelt, or scandalous. Take your pick. You'll find them all in these true stories about family, friends, co-workers, and others whose names she cloaks when telling her tales. Well, she had to. There's the story about being kissed by a President of the United States. And what about that Master's Golf Tournament winner she chastised in front of his entourage? And who feeds their toddler in the tub instead of the high chair just to keep from cleaning up after baby spills? What about the time she saved her parents tons of money on braces because she closed a gap between her two front teeth by herself? Gotta hand it to her, though, at least she's authentic while she divulges this confidential information. Buckle up and get ready to be amused.
