Right now, I'm reading:
"Just Kids" by Patti Smith

My favorite story of all time is:
"A Wonderful Tonight" by Patty Boyd

In bed I like to read:

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
A music blog called the Deli SF and anything I find interesting.

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?
I would have accidentally spit on the person I was conversing with. Then shout "it's the story of my life!"

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Life is not really that bad.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
"Antiques Unltd" by Picture Atlantic

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
I would bring John Lennon back from the dead and make him read my work.
