Fives logo – a stylised number five

with Michael J. Seidlinger

The last thing that made you smile

Realizing a minute ago that today is Sunday not Monday.

A secret

I don’t read as much as I used to.

The last thing you wrote

The first chapter in a work of nonfiction I’m more than a little afraid of (which is probably a good thing).

Your favourite city

I like the idea of saying something like Seoul, Korea, and I one day hope for such a statement to be true.

What you’d place in a time capsule

A jump drive full of everything I’ve failed to ever write/finish.
