Nola Studiola’s curator for August 2014 is Christianne Sanchez Robinson.
Christianne is an attorney in Houston, Texas, who claims to be someone who loves words. So far, what she’s been able to produce include: a diary, short stories, various half-finished pieces, blog entries, articles for a now-defunct venture capital magazine in New York City, and a self-published novel. Her husband, their Labrador Retriever and somewhat-bitchy cat are the best things in her life. Christianne is a big fan of the following, including but not limited to: reading, snow skiing, Tex-Mex, cheesy TV, Longhorn football and happy hour(s). Find her blog and links to her self-published novel here: www.gorgeousandsassy.com.
Note the above claim to love words and laundry list of written pieces; thus Christianne hopes to use Studiola to awaken her creative juices. Since completing the writing and editing of her novel, starting her law career and just, well, in general, living—she has been slow to get back into a regular groove of writing things other than contract drafts. She hopes to share some of her history in a memoir format, to simply enjoy the process and hopefully to entertain.
