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!

Countdown to Homefulness--8 (not 7) Days Left

(posted a trifle early so I don't have any distractions for tomorrow's more official writing)

A BRIEF POEM OF HOMEFUL ANTICIPATION

When I’d the chance, right off the bat

I got a little Village flat

So if I ever bought a hat

I’d have a place to hang it.


In dreams, I’ve decked its every stat

From walls to bed to bathroom mat...

But I wake up and notice that

It’s still not mine yet. Dang it!
