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!

A Brief Scrabulish Plea

I just discovered that a simple Google search on the game I named "Scrabulish" does not actually return any results--even though it's the name of a post on my blog! Clearly I need more links. So I'd like to make a request of the whole blogosphere:

1. Go to this post (the original announcement of Scrabulish).
2. Link to it on whatever blog you have.
3. Wait for the magic to happen, Googlewise.

Let's get this term some legs! And maybe even a Wikipedia entry!

By the way, my friend Tracy and I have just finished what may be the finest game of Scrabulish we've played to date. Expect a full report soon.
