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!

Back on Schedule

As you may have noticed, I haven't blogged for a full month, and even before then my blogging got really spotty.  I apologize.  My life as a writer is terra incognita, and I'm learning as I go how to manage my time.  What I learned this time around is that I really need a schedule in order to get things done.  As of yesterday, I have one, and it's made all the difference.  Now that I know when I work and what counts as "done," I am also free to blog and doodle and do all the other things I love without fear of squandering important writing time.  Whew!

So expect me to return to my former habit of two or three posts a day, starting today.  (Or, just possibly, starting after the 25th, for obvious reasons.)  With any luck, hiatuses like these will be less common in the future.

As much as I selfishly want to see more blog posts, I'd rather you devote your time to writing your projects. I have money itching to buy your books. Free me of this cash.
