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!

Gawd, that's funny! Have you ever submitted to The New Yorker?

Glad you liked it! I have submitted to the New Yorker, but there's really no chance my work would be accepted. Bruce Eric Kaplan sent them ten cartoons a week for ten years before he got an acceptance and became a regular. They get something like a thousand cartoons a week and rely 99% of the time on their regular people--who, by the way, still have to draw ten cartoons to get one accepted.

It all seems like a huge waste of ink to me. So I publish them here on my blog where there's a one-to-one acceptance rate...although only about a one in ten chance of getting positive comments. :)
