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

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!

A Comic Book Story I'd Pay To See

In this origin story, our hero---through some adventure or other; maybe he crashes his car into Stonehenge---is summoned by ancient gods to be given great power and help out our world. But first he must choose an object to base his power on. Will it be a sword or a book?

Our hero chooses the book---and it turns out to be a switchblade book! Very cool. (Alternate ending: it's a hollowed-out book with a gun inside.)

(P.S. Yes, this is based on an early-morning remembrance of the story of Captain Britain. I can't believe I still remember stuff like this.)
