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!

Twin Forks It (Possibly) Is!

Thanks to my friend Ellen's comments, I used the USGS website (not actually that easy) and found what I think is a good candidate: The Twin Forks MDWCA. It's outside Alamogordo (which is why I would have thought Albuquerque), it's directly east of Tucson, and I remember we passed through Roswell the next day, marveling at all the alien iconography. The only problem is, this isn't a city; it seems to be a reservoir, in Mayhill New Mexico, which is part of New Mexico's Mutual Domestic Water Consumer's Association, which (in turn) is apparently responsible for providing safe water to New Mexico's rural areas. So if I had to guess, maybe Mayhill grew in the last 15-18 years and swallowed up Twin Forks. At least now I have an idea of which Chamber of Commerce to call.

LATER: Damn. It turns out that on this computer I'm borrowing, I can't seem to add links in Blogger. I dont know why, but I have writing to do and don't have time to futz around with stuff like this. So if you're curious, just go to Mapquest or some such and enter "Twin Forks MDWCA, NM." You may have to pull back a few steps until you can see it, Alamogordo, Roswell, and Tucson all in one screen, but it's worth it just for the closure.
