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!

Href = Happiness!, or What You Will

As the day of my launching the book approaches (I'm fixing the draft of the proposal even as we speak), I've started looking ahead to the day when, in the name of promoting the book, I also expand my blog outward so that it actually looks halfway nice. To that end, I bought myself a printer/scanner today (it actually works! Soon my cartoons will no more be photographs!), and I started reading a book my brother gave me long ago: Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML. (Thanks, Dan! It's a brilliant work of pedagogy.)

In the meantime, however, thanks to helpful reader Ann Curling, THERE IS NOW A LINK IN MY 'ABOUT ME' SECTION, instead of an address to cut and paste! Thanks so much, Ann! Little by little, I embrace the new millennium.
