Hello, my name is Kristin Gracy. My husband and I are the publishers of Southern Biker Magazine and Sword & Shield Magazine.
My husband and I have called east Tennessee home for many years. We moved to Madisonville TN a few years ago to experience the rural life. It’s a wonderful place for our grandkids and friends to come visit, experience a slower paced way of life and build great memories. I love east Tennessee because of the beautiful roads we can ride our motorcycles and explore waterfalls, mountains and valley views. It’s a motorcycle mecca. We also ride our horses on some of the most amazing trails I have ever seen and the nearby Great Smoky Mountains have miles and miles of trails to explore.
We publish two motorcycle magazines from our office on our property. We love being able to walk outside our office to watch the horses graze and the chickens roam the fields. Being a part of the motorcycle community allows us to meet people from the US and other countries who travel to east Tennessee to ride our world class roads. The visitors we meet usually end up becoming great friends and riding companions.
