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!

More Storytelling on the Web

I've talked about James Braly, and here he is, competing on The Moth's new, official MySpace site! All the stories are fun, so why not listen to them all and vote?

Adam Wade, by the way, just won the Moth Grand Slam this year, and James is the only two-time winner, and they both live in the New York area (as, curiously, each of their stories mentions.) So I don't know what they're supposed to do if they win a trip to New York. Maybe they could win a trip to someplace that makes them appreciate New York on their return. I vote for Lafayette.
