About Gabrielle Lichterman

A New York City gal transplanted to Florida’s Gulf Coast

I have always had a passion for writing—and I suspect it may have something to do with my genes. I come from a long line of women writers: My great grandmother was an aspiring novelist. And, her daughter, my grandmother, was a member of the New York City literati scene in the 1940s who went on to become a ghostwriter of radio soap operas for Elaine Sterne Carrington and speechwriter for Eleanor Roosevelt.

Originally from Manhattan, New York, I took full advantage of the city’s many famous treasures while I lived there, such as Katz’s Delicatessen, Central Park and its numerous museums.

After a long search around the country to find the perfect follow-up to the Big Apple, my husband and I discovered St. Petersburg—a small, artistic city on Florida’s sunny Gulf Coast. On the first day of our first visit, we decided to move here. Now we have many new treasures to enjoy.

On those few occasions when I’m not writing, you can usually find me taking photographs, baking, playing with my dogs and enjoying the nearby glorious beaches at sunset.
