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!

This Just In: Mr. Tex in Brooklyn!

[Note: this is inside pool of interest only to fellow members of the National Puzzlers League.]

I just got the following email from Mike "Mr. Tex" Reiss:

"Thanks to your noodging, Denise & I are coming to the Crossword Tournament on Friday night (for the reception & team games) and Sunday morning (to watch the finals). Tell your puzzle pals."

I would have forgotten to noodge entirely if it hadn't been for Jon Delfin, so there's plenty of noodging going around. Anyway, consider yourselves told.

Crossword tournament? And I thought people moved to the Big City for the shows, the restaurants, the culture, the diversity. I'm so living in the sticks.

Would it be gauche to bring him a stack of Simpsons and Queer Duck merchandise to sign? A crossword tournament is practically a comic book convention after all.
