About Me

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?
wanting too much and not knowing how to begin.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Nearly everywhere nowadays... in every conversation, at SMITH, NYT... I'm also an avid audio book listener.

In bed I like to read:
My dreams trapped in between my eyelids

My favorite story of all time is:
The Little Prince.

Right now, I'm reading:

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Follow your heart. Have more fun.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Young at Heart by Frank Sinatra

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