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!

Catching Up

Right now, I can tell I have at least three posts to give:

(1) the winning story I told at the Moth;

(2) a post about the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade and Halloween in general (best night I've spent in Manhattan so far) on Tuesday; and

(3) a quick review of the religious books my thoughtful Dad gave me for my birthday.

Problem is, between the incredibly busy Monday-to-Wednesday and the catching up on a huge sleep deficit on Thursday, I haven't had any time to actually update the site. The excuse would be that I've been out obtaining anecdotes. Expect a lot of posting this weekend instead. That's when not having a life really remunerates in bloggery.
