Elsa K. Simcik started her writing career as a relationship columnist about 10 years ago, covering love, breakups and the world of online dating. But after marrying her husband Frank in 2003, she realized that the old saying, “Write what you know,” was true. Since dating was no longer her expertise, she segued into other lifestyle topics like health and fitness, travel and human-interest stories. Originally from Texas, her work has appeared in The Dallas Morning News and Texas Parks and Wildlife Magazine. After moving to Atlanta four years ago, Elsa started contributing to local publications like The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and now Simply Buckhead (“Take Another Look at Asheville,” page 45). She loves living in the Southeast and was thrilled to visit Asheville to write about its laid-back, fun and delicious finds in this issue of Simply Buckhead.
