Thanks for stopping by! Avionne Parris here, a.k.a. SioSavi; your favourite author poodle (i.e. my big curly hair, lolz). I’m an aspiring novelist and authorpreneur living in the beautiful twin island nation of Trinidad & Tobago. I do writing and motivational inspirations every Friday. Please follow my blog and become a virtual member of my Savi Crew!

1. I love being Roman Catholic.

Not in a preachy way—hence my nickname, Catholic Sprinkle which is one, due to my love of cupcakes/sprinkles and, two, due to my incorporating religion in small, manageable doses, i.e. sprinkles.

2. Anything cold-blooded terrifies me.

Snakes, alligators, crocodiles, iguanas, lizards, etc. I think the only mildly tolerable reptile for me might be a turtle/tortoise, probably because they’re super slow and can never actually catch me.

3. Love ice cream, hate pickles.

Nothing personal, just the way I was raised, jk. The funny thing is, I love cucumbers but hate pickles which are basically cucumbers in a “special sauce”. But we all have our quirks, don’t we?

4. Although I live on an island (a twin island, to be exact), I cannot swim.

Which is either pretty ironic or extremely unfortunate depending on who’s reading this. But as long as Trinidad & Tobago doesn’t go the way of Atlantis, I should be fine. Right?

5. I’m a writer anomaly—I don’t drink coffee and I don’t meditate.

However, I do drink Coca-Cola (#notsponsored) and I do pray which basically means that my caffeine fix and self-actualisation needs have been met. Mission accomplished.

And remember, no matter where you live, take a little time to enjoy the island life! Happy Writing!
