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!

Housing Update

Just so everyone knows: I've moved out of Sherry's house proper and am now staying in the just-cleaned, newly-guest-ready outbuilding. Up until now, though I dearly love my benefactress, the constant stream of guests (and the fact that I can't move around in the morning without waking someone up) has been a terrible distraction, and although I've been getting writing done, I've felt like I've been doing it in a hobbled fashion, at less than full capacity. This new place, because it's completely separate, bids fair to let me do all the work I've needed at exactly the level I want to. So I predict a redoubling of productivity starting tomorrow!

That's the good news. The bad news is that it might make blogging like this a little spotty if I get really wrapped up in the writing. I guess we'll see.
