Right now, I'm reading:
A Storm of Swords by George R R Martin

My favorite story of all time is:
The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice or Perfume by Patrick Suskind

In bed I like to read:
The kindle, because I can read it without waking my baby :)

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Nowhere really, I happened upon SMITH by accident.

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
The grass always being greener o the other side.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Appreciate your teenage years!! Don't jump into everything straight away, take your time and enjoy being young.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys at the moment! It always changes.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
No one in particular, I just hope anyone who does read it appreciates it :)
