About Me

Right now, I'm reading:

My favorite story of all time is:
Tolkien's The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings.

In bed I like to read:
English literature, from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur to Chesterton's Father Brown, Waugh's Brideshead Revisited, and Godden's In This House of Brede.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Miscellaneous news sites.

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?
Failure is not an option.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Success may sometimes look like failure.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Unloveable by The Smiths ("I wear black on the outside 'cause black is how I feel on the inside").

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