About the Author

Cheryl Lauer has called Savannah home for more than 30 years and is grateful to live in an area with a beautiful and vibrant historic district, which has become a national architectural showcase, and near the picturesque seaside communities of Tybee Island and Hilton Head, S.C. Born and reared in the Pocono Mountain region of Pennsylvania, some days she is still in awe that her home now is surrounded by palm trees.
Cheryl has worked as a reporter in Atlanta and Savannah, retiring from the Savannah Morning News after covering news and feature stories mainly from the island communities of Chatham County. She has also written for the Savannah Magazine and the Georgia Ports Authority’s magazine, AnchorAge. She is pleased to return to working on the Insiders’ Guide to Savannah & Hilton Head, having served as the photography editor in the book’s first edition.
Cheryl and her husband, Michael Richter, live on Talahi Island in Chatham County. Their home is about 10 minutes east of the historic district and about 10 minutes to the beach at Tybee. Their son Cason, a home-schooled graduate, attends college in Savannah.
