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!

Alien McBurgers

Light posting this weekend as I try to put together a book proposal...but I had to post this. As I was using my nice digital camera to capture higher-quality bar napkin cartoons, I discovered that the camera itself had a card in it full of pictures from my trip across country. Well---not from my trip, exactly, but from the one part of the trip that included Roswell, New Mexico during the Roswell UFO Festival. As you'd expect, everything in Roswell is a little bit infected by UFOs. So this here is a picture of what the McDonald's in Roswell looks like.

...And here's the street nearby, to show what ALL the streetlamps look like.

Just wondering if on your homestate travels did you ever come across the "space age lodge" in Gila Bend. Your Roswell pics reminded me of it.
