Right now, I'm reading:
Elena Ferrante The Neopolitan trilogy. 9n the final book "Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay"

My favorite story of all time is:
The Little Prince

In bed I like to read:
a lot, alone, unless ......

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
every opportunity that arises!

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?
My travels as a member of the Zambian women's squash team!

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Be kinder. Hold onto patience tightly.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
You can't hurry love.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Elena Ferrante
