Beverly Crider is a freelance writer with a background in media relations and web design. Back in pre-Internet days,she founded the Magic City BBS, a dial-up computer bulletin board system that introduced Alabama to its first online newspaper, the Birmingham Post-Herald.
An Alabama native and proud graduate of the University of Alabama,Beverly currently travels the back roads and forgotten haunts of the state in search of material for her blog, "Strange Alabama," on AL.com and on Facebook. When it's time to put pen to paper (or pixel to screen), she's usually surrounded by her furry children, also known as the "Crider Critters," who provide their own form of inspiration.
