Bourbon Cowboy

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

Name:
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!

People Are Paying to See Me!

I can't quite believe it myself. I think the shock shows a little in the photograph.

By the way, I've seen the first, second, and sixth people all perform at the last SpeakEasy, and they're terrific. Should be a great show. If you're in the city, why not come by?

Damn, you are making me sorry I don't live in the city anymore.

So what’s your cut? A dollar a head? “Stories from the Back Room” sounds a little suggestive, I must say, but I suppose that’s promotional enticement, eh?

Seriously, though, congratulations!
