Right now, I'm reading:
The baby whisper. Exciting new life:)

My favorite story of all time is:
My personalized fairy tale of course.

In bed I like to read:
Till I'm finished the last page.

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?
Never settled, always chasing a dream.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Embrace the things you can't change. Never give up on your dreams. You are special, kind and loved.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Any famous publisher would do fine.
