A completing read to set message-mode or Gnus "from"

As a Helm user with 7 or so email addresses I might be sending with, I wanted to put together a quick completing-read to fill in my from address with a keystroke; however, it's not working and I'm not sure why. It complains about wanting a list, but when I return a list it complains about wanting a string.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun tsa/message-choose-from ()
 (interactive
  (let ((my-name "Joseph Smith")
(my-from-list '("address@hidden" "address@hidden" "address@hidden"))) (message-make-from my-name (completing-read "From:" my-from-list nil t)))))

(add-hook 'message-mode-hook
          (lambda ()
(local-set-key (kbd "C-c f") 'tsa/message-choose-from)))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Error:
command-execute: Wrong type argument: listp, "Joseph Smith <address@hidden>"

Is this to do with "interactive" vs "message-make-from"? The completing-read seems to work, but the final step is blocked by the error.
