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 email@example.com.
As implied by this blog’s 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 a principal at Seliger + Associates Grant Writing (which also has a blog) and I’m currently teaching at Marymount Manhattan College.

I strongly prefer physical books; although I have a Kindle but retain a romantic, atavistic attachment to paper. I do at least start everything that crosses my desk, and I begin every book with the greatest of hope and least of mercy.
