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!

Weekend Plans

I really really really want to finish my book proposal! But unfortunately I'm moving this weekend. Fortunately, it's only a block away, so it won't be a HUGE pain. Unfortunately, it's still basically me and a handtruck, since the work itself is so trivial it hardly seems worth asking people to drive out to help with. (Besides, my new roommate has a pickup! So that'll help with the few heavier things.)

Anyway, here's hoping I'll have time to actually write this weekend. I have a chapter planned for How To Love God Without Being a Jerk that's a.) about evolution (and science in general), and b.) suggests a way for evangelicals to read the Bible and science harmoniously that literally no one (to my knowledge) has ever suggested. And I think it'll work!

So anyway, wish me luck. Might be a light-posting weekend, for obvious reasons.
