Bourbon Cowboy

The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

Location: New York, New York, United States

I'm a storyteller in the New York area who is a regular on NPR's "This American Life" and at shows around the city. Moved to New York in 2006 and am working on selling a memoir of my years as a greeting card writer, and (as a personal, noncommercial obsession) a nonfiction book called "How to Love God Without Being a Jerk." My agent is Adam Chromy at Artists and Artisans. If you came here after hearing about my book on "This American Life" and Googling my name, the "How to Love God" book itself isn't in print yet, and may not even see print in its current form (I'm focusing on humorous memoir), but here's a sample I've posted in case you're curious anyway: Sample How To Love God Introduction, Pt. 1 of 3. Or just look through the archives for September 18, 2007.) The book you should be expecting is the greeting card book, about which more information is pending. Keep checking back!

What's With All These Excerpts, Since You're No Doubt Wondering

If you've been away for a few days, you may have noticed that I suddenly dumped a lot of excerpted material on this site in the last three posts. It's my way of saying thanks to everyone who's read my blog and helped me out over the last three occasionally stressful months. It seems to me that the best way to repay loyalty is to keep the site full of entertainment. Since my freelance gig has been keeping me too busy to post the last few days, this is a thank-you with interest. In the future I imagine I'll do shorter posts and more of them. (But still basically funny and/or interesting, we all hope.)

For now, though---and especially those of you who were on my Dave Update list last summer---enjoy the thrilling conclusion of my journey. I realize it's a lot of material, but what the hell; it's the weekend.
