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?
Everything done the hard way. I'm so stubborn and can't settle for someone else's account of something before me, I have to experience it.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:

In bed I like to read:

My favorite story of all time is:
Wow, I have to pick?! Well I guess it would have to be The Memory Keepers Daughter for a more modern read, but my favorite classic right now is Wuethering Heights.

Right now, I'm reading:
