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!

Dawn of the Interwebs

Can it be?  I actually have...Internet access!  Right here in my own apartment!  No more scrambling around to hunt up stray bandwidth, buying polite bagels I don't want.  I can actually check my email whenever I want to without getting dressed up, showering, and then justifying the trip by staying for 90 minutes.  Excuse me for a moment--just thinking about all the time I can save now has made me a little dizzy.  

The bad news is that I'm still completely swamped with my book, and I'm hoping to get a really good draft done at the plausible clip of...well, I can't specify, but I should be mostly free of the sweatiest mining by the end of the month.  

In the meantime, though, my postings should pick up almost immediately, partly because it's gotten so much easier to do now...and partly because, back during the move, I uncovered a surprising stash of old cartoons in a book that was covered with mold.  So in order to toss the book, I had to scan the cartoons, and now I've got about a dozen of them ready at a moment's notice.  I'm (tentatively) back, baby!  I'm (tentatively) back!
