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!

Guess What Laptop-Sized Device Started Freezing Up At Random On Friday?

It seems to have been caused by an automatic Windows update gone horribly wrong, though I assume my IT guy at work will know for sure. All I know is, this is fucking driving me fucking bananas. Microsoft has one last fucking chance. If a rebuild of the system, followed by a decent firewall/antivirus combo doesn't make me solvent for at least the next few months, I'm buying a Mac even if it costs me the last of my savings. This is fucking ridiculous. And once more, just because I'm frustrated: fucking!

Soon the windows alliance will be crushed and Bourbon Cowboy will be one of us... I have foreseen it.
