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!

I'm Back, Baby!

Eschewing yet another potentially flawed (and expensive) wireless adapter (which turns out to run around $60-75 if you want quality), I went the direct route, bought a $20 cord, and now I'm connected directly to our cable system---and at full speed, which never happened when I was connecting through my Cretaceous 1.1 USB port. When I got online I actually giggled and swung my legs. I had no idea how stressed out I'd been. I'll be smiling all evening. The long dark night has ended. Dawn is here, and it will continue shining until one of my roommates trips.
