The Author

LYNN GARSON graduated from Tulane University with a degree in art history and holds a law degree from Emory University School of Law. She has lived in Paris, New York, and Hong Kong and currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia.

The author is a practicing healthcare attorney with a prominent national law firm. In her earlier incarnation as a retailer, she owned one of Atlanta’s best-known gift and tabletop stores. Garson Goodman was the first store in the Southeast to import a number of luxury lines from France, England, Italy and Portugal. This sense of style informs the book, particularly as the author describes the elegant life that she enjoyed as a child and young woman.

The author has a son and two daughters. Southern Vapors is the author’s first book and is currently being adapted for the stage.
