Right now, I'm reading:
Silence Of The Lambs

My favorite story of all time is:
The Raven By Edgar Allan Poe. ( Although it's a poem it's very well written, dark and mysterious.)

In bed I like to read:
Murder stories, physiological horror, and science fiction.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:

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?
Well I'd be talking about the story of my life of course! The whole thing, the drama, the problems, being an adult. Everything.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
"You know it gets better ,right?"

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Breathe Me by Sia

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Edgar Allan Poe...although he is dead. He could come back as a zombie!
