Right now, I'm reading:
Begums, Thugs and white Mughals. a journal of a woman who traveled in India in the 1800s

My favorite story of all time is:
Mr Perry's Jane Whitefield series, but also the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, both have some great life lessons

In bed I like to read:
Janet Evanovich, Stephanie Plum reminds me to just be me and that is just fabulous most of the time

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
don't be afraid to just be

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
