The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

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!

That Was Fast...

It's now 1:30 and I just finished my writing quota for the day. Turns out denying myself the Internet was all I needed to do! I'm no expert, but this delayed-reward system must be the way that addicts of other sorts also get their work done: just get a trustworthy friend who won't give you the syringe until you show them your ideas for the Preston account. As systems go, you could do worse. Let's hope this keeps up.

You can also alternate days, for example, make Mon-Wed-Fri no internet days.
