I am a native Mississippian who has lived and worked in Middle Tennessee most of my adult life. I currently live and practice law in a town near Nashville, which allows me to either escape to the country to gaze at cows (I’m not kidding) or go downtown to some little dive to listen to live music, as the mood strikes. I love to read and write, sing in the choir at my church, cook and eat, go ballroom dancing, spend time with family and friends, go to the beach and the mountains on vacation, watch music documentaries and Gilmore Girls reruns on Netflix, and play with other people’s dogs and cats and horses, because I don’t have any right now.
