People know Tinsley Mortimer for her many appellations—handbag and fashion designer, reality television personality, runway show and red carpet staple, and New York City socialite. Others know her as the girl who left her hometown of Richmond for the Big Apple but never discarded her Southern “girly-girl” style and flair. Now, Mortimer can add author to her list of monikers.

Mortimer grew up in Richmond, but left for the Big Apple in search of the glitz and the glam, much like Minty Davenport, the South Carolina-born heroine of her first work of fiction, “Southern Charm,” which the New York Times has called a “pink Ladurée macaron of a novel.” “Southern Charm,“ published by Simon & Schuster, follows Minty’s transition from Charleston to New York City, where her “career” as an “It Girl” on the Manhattan social scene takes off after she is photographed for Women’s Wear Daily. As Minty finds her way into the spotlight, she learns that the rules and customs that guided her old life don’t apply in New York society.
