About Me

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Get ready. Shit's gonna go down.

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?
The best things happen when I'm not trying so hard.

In bed I like to read:
Non-fiction/memoirs/biographies, Vanity Fair's Proust Questionnaire, In Style magazine. Surfing the internet, usually for dumb stuff like shoes or t-shirts on sale, is a great sedative. I put items in shopping carts, then chicken out before I buy or, better yet, I fall asleep.

Right now, I'm reading:
Slouching Towards Bethlehem by Joan Didion

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
"Dream On" by Aerosmith

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

My favorite story of all time is:
My favorite stories have always been those my kids tell me about their day, especially since both are now away from home! Thank you, Skype!

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Lunch Ticket
