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!

The Briefest of Updates

The atheism section obviously needs more work. I’m thinking about it now, but for now I’m simply removing it from the proposal, since you’re usually supposed to submit one or two sample chapters, and that would have made four. So the proposal will still go out; just not with that section in it.

In the meantime, I'm working on a transcribed version of a story I told on Thursday at Sherry Weaver’s Speakeasy. It's funny, but it's taking some time. So in the meantime I'm probably going to post another cartoon so the entire day isn't postless like yesterday was. Sorry for the holdup.
