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!

Help For When You Sleep

A tip I just learned before I woke up: if you're ever having a nightmare or even just a fairly unpleasant dream (example: you have to write a long essay in no time at all to compete for some national scholarship), it often helps to take a mental step back and examine the situation for any faulty premises (example: Wait! I'm not in school anymore! I don't have to do anyhing!). It saves both time and stress.

P.S. Light posting because I'm putting together a nonfiction book proposal. Wish me luck!
