Gervais grew up in Charleston and earned her M.B.A. from The Citadel, and soon after became a professor there. As the director of Patricia McArver Public Speaking Lab, she coached students, faculty, and staff to become effective speakers. She also advised the college’s public speaking club. Her debut novel, “In Polite Company” (William Morrow) comes out in August. Sure to be a hit, it’s a look inside the private lives of Charleston aristocracy, where a former debutante learns that sometimes good behavior leads to bad decisions.
