Right now, I'm reading:
Faust by Goethe

My favorite story of all time is:
Oh, gosh that's tough. This will change next week I guarantee you. The Host is near the top of the list among the Harry Potter series and The Hunger Games series. Let's say Hunger Games series for now.

In bed I like to read:
Anything with a wizard and a deathwish.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Tumble, Facebook, not really many places online. Mostly in newspapers and published works.

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?
Oh, you know. I don't like it when people don't see how they are being harmful to others.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Breathe. It's going to be okay.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Right now I'm really liking Follow Me by Muse.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
My very close friend Ana is always supportive in my writing and creativity. It would be interresting to see what she thought about it.
