About Me

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
You're nice. Now break some rules.

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?
keeping my mouth shut

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Too many newspapers. When I escape, The Atlantic and The Atavist.

My favorite story of all time is:
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Right now, I'm reading:
\"Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore,\" by my friend Robin Sloan

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
A stranger who sees something of herself in me. ... OK, OK, I confess: or Bruce Springsteen.
