Though Eleanor Inge Baker has never before attempted to pen a volume of this magnitude, what she lacks in experience she makes up for in enthusiasm. She made her debut in Mobile in 2001 as Lady Eleanor Jane Inge, wore bright red lipstick everywhere she went, and after that first season of Mardi Gras revelry, gained a new appreciation for the penitence of Ash Wednesday.
A lover of Mobile, Mardi Gras, family, and anyone with a story to tell, Eleanor finds joy writing about the lives of notable Mobilians for the Port City’s own ACCESS Magazine. Her work has also appeared in Mobile Bay Monthly, Mobile Press-Register, Lagniappe, and the Alabama Writers’ Forum. She graduated from Auburn University with a bachelor’s degree in English, and then earned her MFA in Writing from Spalding University in Louisville, Kentucky.
Eleanor lives in historic Oakleigh Garden District with her husband, Stephen, and two children, Buck (5) and Hallie Inge (3). Collaborating on this project with her friends, Meggan and Jeff, is one of the greatest honors she has received to date.
