ABOUT OUR PRESENTERS
The author of more than twenty books, New York Times bestselling novelist Mary Alice Monroe found her true calling in environmental fiction when she moved to coastal South Carolina. Already a successful author, she was captivated by the beauty and fragility of her new home. She has received numerous awards, including several Readers Choice Awards. Most recently, Monroe was named a 2018 inductee into the South Carolina Academy of Authors, the Palmetto State's literary hall of fame. She is an active conservationist and serves on the South Carolina Aquarium board (emeritis), the Leatherback Trust, the Pat Conroy Literary Center honorary board, and Casting Carolinas advisory board. Monroe lives with her family on a barrier island outside Charleston, South Carolina.
Sally R. Murphys Turning the Tide chronicles the creation of South Carolinas sea turtle program, the evolution of the International Sea Turtle Society and the ACE Basin, and documents the decades-long battle for use of turtle excluder devices (TEDs) to protect sea turtles. Filled with stories, both funny and sad, Turning the Tide describes one womans triumphs, both personal and professional, against tough odds. She was hired by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources in 1973 as their first Environmental Education Specialist. She worked for 30 years as a wildlife biologist in the SCDNR. Sally Murphy lives on the edge of the Ace Basin near Sheldon, South Carolina.
