Gervais grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, on an alley behind Rainbow Row. She spent her childhood riding her bike in the family drawing room and hunting for pottery shards in the backyard. As a debutante, she got written up for twirling before the seated dinner. She dropped out of her sorority but is a proud graduate of Vanderbilt University. Gervais bopped around the west coast in her early twenties, eventually moving back east to report and produce the news for local radio and television broadcasts. After earning her MBA at The Citadel—The Military College of South Carolina—she was invited to teach communications to cadets. Gervais loved teaching—especially the uniform, complete with a beret!—but in 2020, she finally caved to a strong and bizarre urge to write books. IN POLITE COMPANY is her first novel. The book is a peak behind the veil of Charleston society, where a former debutante learns that sometimes good behavior leads to bad decisions.
