ATLANTA (FOX 5 Atlanta) - She grew up in the South and she's got a collection of fun, witty essays to prove it.
Author Helen Ellis stops by Good Day Atlanta to talk about her new book, "Southern Lady Code."
In the collection, she covers everything from marriage and manners to thank you notes plus much more.
Ellis also says anyone can learn how to speak Southern Lady Code, a technique which is if you don't have something nice to say, you say something not so nice in a nice way.
Ellis, has over 16,000 people following her on Twitter and she just started her own "Southern Lady Code" podcast.
