Story
Tagline
Memphis-based freelance writer, editor + author of 100 Things To Do in Memphis Before You Die
Introduction
Hi from Memphis! Follow me weekly at Tennessee TripTales to discover all that's good about West Tennessee, from the outdoors to the music and, of course, the local eats and drinks. (As I have a six-year-old travel companion/research assistant, I guarantee you a regular dose of family-approved itinerary ideas, too.) I also contribute to Virgin Atlantic's Flying in the Face of Ordinary blog (more on Memphis!) and you can read my annual features in the official Tennessee Vacation Guide and Memphis Map & Tourist Guide

What's next for my readers? I'm busy crafting Southern-fried itineraries for my newest client, TravelSouthUSA.com, and my first book, 100 Things To Do in Memphis Before You Die, is fresh out. See samanthacrespo.com for details.
