Right now, I'm reading:
'A Gothic Treasure Trove' an anthology of various authors.

My favorite story of all time is:
Ferdinand. My sister found it and gave it to me for my last birthday-hadn't read it since I was six and it's still my favorite.

In bed I like to read:
Anything from novels to magazines.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
I'm "old school", I just read books.

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?

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Stop waiting for things to happen.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Lately, it's 'Calm The Storm' by Graffiti6.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
The Vagrant.
