About me

It’s not about my savvy, but yours! Reading and story engagement are great for your mind. It’s also about our lovely Paris, Texas, and our amazing arts community here. I am a life-long reading, music and fine arts enthusiast. I suffer, quite frankly, from story addiction, regardless of the form, and hope to convert other enthusiasts. Reading and study are a solid part of my life, as I have been an attorney for twenty years. I also naturally share my opinions. Here you can get my opinions about my passions: Fine Arts and Paris, Texas. You will also find my Book Briefs in The Paris News and on Goodreads. So, enjoy! And remember to keep your mind active and healthy — Savvy — by taking a break from the shallows (TV, Internet and electronic device of your choice).
