Travel Tips for Saint Charles

See Not Only the Books, But The Authors As Well

by deecat

Jill and I both are voracious readers. We read, trade books, talk about what we read, and haunt bookstores. So, when we saw the sign for MAIN STREET BOOKS at the Old Schoolhouse, we rushed right inside.
To our surprise, there were two woman seated (both were authors), and they were at the Main Street Books to sign any of their books that were sold.
Mary Fran Rash is the owner, and she introduced us to Elizabeth Grayson and Eileen Dreyer.
These authors showed us their books and told us what the books were about and how they ( as authors ) had "researched" before writing.

Elizabeth Grayson's Book MOON IN THE WATER takes place on a riverboat and a new steamboat. Therefore, Elizabeth did her research by going on a cruise. Both Jill and I purchased her book; she signed it with a note and three bookmarks.

Her other books are:
COLOR OF THE WIND
PAINTED BY THE SUN

Eileen Dreyer's Book WITH A VENGEANCE is about a woman who is a tactical emergency medic for the St. Louis SWAT team and a trauma nurse. This book is a mystery. Eileen's research was to take courses to be a tactical emergency medic. Jill and I also purchased her book and received her signature, a personal note and an unusual ballpoint pen in the shape of a hypodermic needle advertising another novel of hers that is still in hardback called HEAD GAMES.

Her other books are:
BRAIN DEAD
BAD MEDICINE
NOTHING PERSONAL
IF LOOKS COULD KILL
A MAN TO DIE FOR Meeting such talented women authors was a real treat. Elizabeth Grayson writes historical romances and Eileen Dreyer writes Mysteries...both genres are ones that we often read. This experience just added to the enjoyable day we experienced in Saint Charles, Missouri.

Victorian Beauty With 21st Century Conveniences

by deecat

"Old Elm Tree Inn Bed and Breakfast"

While visiting Saint Charles, Jill and I stayed at the wonderful Victorian house (Bed and Breakfast) called Old Elm Tree Inn.
Note the wonderful wrap around
Veranda and the lovely backyard.

"The World's Fair Suite at Old Elm Tree Inn"

This double photo shows the sleeping portion and sitting portion of our suite(World's Fair Suite) at Old Elm Tree Inn Bed and Breakfast. Note the slanted ceiling in the seating area. Jill Kept forgetting about it; thus, she hit her head several times.
It is a lovely suite with authentic furnishings and accesories. Our favorite was an antique doll baby buggy.

"Lovely Parlor at Old Elm Tree Inn Bed & Breakfast"

The photo is of Jill seated on the beautiful Victorian Couch in the lovely Parlor. Note the gorgeous antiques.

"Lovely Antiques at Old Elm Tree Inn"

Jill took this photo of me in one of the four rooms that were designated for guests at the Old Elm Tree Inn. Note the beautiful lamp.

"Golden Retrievers at Old Elm Tree Inn"

Martha has two beautiful Golden Retrievers who stay on the backporch area, which is divided by a fence from the backyard. They were such sweet dogs, and each time we arrived or left, they greeted us.
They just made our stay more fun.

"170 Year-old-Elm Tree in Backyard at the B&B"

I took a vertical panoramic of the magnificent 170 year-old-Elm Tree at the Old Elm Tree Inn's backyard. My photo was so long that my scanner could not capture all of it.
We were surprised to see this Elm because in Illinois the Elm disease has killed all of our Elm trees. Lucky Martha to have such a healthy, beautiful masterpiece!
