Aleigh Acerni

I'm Aleigh. (My name rhymes with Sally.)

I'm a Charlotte-based writer and editor who has covered everything from gardening to youth hostels to women’s issues. I've interviewed celebrities including playwright Eve Ensler, actresses Kristin Davis and Virginia Madsen, and pioneering chef Alice Waters. My specialty? Writing about natural, organic beauty.

My book, Justice at Guantanamo: One Woman’s Odyssey and Her Crusade for Human Rights, co-authored with Kristine Huskey, was published by Globe Pequot Press in 2009.

I'm a dog person. I'm married to a wine week. I love telling people's stories, travel, gardening, and cooking. The photo on this page was taken on the Volga River in Russia.
