Things are going well. I've been working freelance for NPR and Esquire magazine, and I don't have a boss or a day job. I spend all day at the coffee shop writing. I'm just finished my fourth novel.
If you want to know about my journey from NYC to TX, you can read this essay I wrote about it:
If you "like" me I will never know it. I don't have the premium membership thing. Just message me and say hi. I'm nice.
I haven't updated my location because I live in a small town, and I feel like it might invite headaches. I travel a lot.
I go to the gym sometimes, or go running. And I eat a lot of peanut m&ms. And I like reading about architecture.
As far as contemporary novels, I loved Fourth of July Creek, and Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh. And Dennis Lehane can do no wrong.
I like old movies. Especially old musicals, comedies, and noir films from the 30s and 40s. I am desperately in love with Ginger Rogers. I promise, I'm straight.
Here is the best scene from any movie ever: http://youtu.be/Z-2r3zzZYgA
As far as music goes, I listen to a lot of Coltrane and Mingus and Charlie Parker. I also like Uncle Tupelo. And Bob Wills. And Solomon Burke. Sometimes when I go running I listen to "Wolf Like Me" by TV on the Radio and pretend I'm a werewolf on the loose.
I don't watch much TV. Not being pretentious. I'm just busy. I would watch TV with you if you want.
