I’m Saxon Henry, an author, journalist and content strategist. My most recent book The Modern Salonnière is a collection of essays combining my love of travel, reading, and creative writing. Until the pandemic hit, I had no idea how valuable it would be as an armchair travel escape. The pleasure the reviews bring me is immense because they illustrate how much people are enjoying the book: “The book feels like a best friend who just took me by the hand to time-travel through history.” “I am only one third through it and I greedily want to own every story for myself.” “Your book has been my constant friend through the last few at-home months.” “Saxon Henry leads you beyond the places pinned on the maps, into stories and places that were always there for you to discover, hidden in plain sight.” “You have kidnapped me and whisked me off on a magical ride through space and time!”
I am currently working on the next manuscript that will have the same flavor as The Modern Salonnière but with a different cast of characters hitting their marks on the world stage of history. My latest books could not have been possible without my 20+ years as a journalist. I have written for a number of national shelter and travel publications, as well as for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Robb Report. My other books, which you will find on bookshop.org, are Stranded on the Road to Promise, Anywhere But Here, and Four Florida Moderns. I call the town in which I grew up, Chattanooga, Tennessee, home now but I am a New Yorker at heart, the nearly two decades living and traveling from there important to my development as a writer.
