Born in Savannah, GA, Myra Scheer moved to New York around the time Studio 54 opened its velvet ropes. Even though she earned a degree in Advertising/PR from the University of Georgia it was working with Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager that gave her a Masters. She was their assistant, guarded the "inner door" and for a time, interim in-house publicist. She stayed the course in PR and specializes now in health, beauty and not-for-profits — "the opposite of disco," she jokes. She is on the board of the Savannah Film Festival and is writing a first novel loosely based on her trudge to happy destiny.
