In Anything You Want, Derek Sivers says: “The coolest people I meet are the ones who find me through something I’ve written.” Same here. So if you want to say hello or have questions or need to complain or praise or found an error, say hi at

As implied by the title, this site is about books, writing, and culture—the story of the story. It began through e-mail and IM conversations with friends. When not writing here, I’m part of Seliger + Associates Grant Writing (which also has a blog) and a PhD student at the University of Arizona.

Note to publicists and publishers: If you want to send books or review copies, send me an e-mail for a shipping address or use:

I do at least start everything that crosses my desk, and I begin every book with great hope and no mercy. I have a Kindle but retain a romantic, atavistic attachment to paper books, despite the challenges of storing and sorting.

    Reading a book…not on a kindle is one of my favorite passtimes….I also love keeping a notebook of my thoughts just as much as I love to put my photos in albums. Technology is great but when the lights go out, or the battery is dead….then what….

    Great Blog btw…..
