Sara Hopkins is a musician, singer, and voice teacher who started out as a writer and is returning to her roots. She grew up in Southside Virginia and lived in Richmond before moving to Chicago, Florida, Maryland, and now Pennsylvania. She has too many degrees (English literature, art history, and vocal performance) and now reviews books on Amazon and Goodreads for the sheer pleasure of it. In the 1970s, she reviewed books professionally for the Miami Herald. She divides her time between Royan, France, and State College, Pennsylvania.
