I’m at a time in my life where I’m thinking about relationships – the relationships I currently have and the relationships I hope to create. Over the last ten years, I’ve changed a lot.  Years ago, when I was in a place of perpetual pain, I bonded with people over the...

I’m an anomaly.  I’m one of those rare few who actually like moving.  That’s right.  I enjoy relocating.  Moving out and moving on.  Moving.  There’s always been something exhilarating about letting go.  I’m not going to descend into analysis about whether or not this...

I’m not gonna lie. I’ve ghosted people.  I’ve exchanged messages with men on online dating sites only to let their communications go unanswered when I realized we weren’t a match. I’ve been ghosted, too.  It seems to be part of the modern online dating experience.

I first met Lisa at the Writers’ Digest Pitch Slam in New York City. She jokes now that she “picked me up.” I suppose she did, although I seem to remember the two of us simultaneously locking eyes and smiling before she swaggered over and introduced herself.

As a writer, I’m used to being an island. And, by that, I don’t mean some tropical destination surrounded by water on all sides that sexy tourists come to visit. I’m more like a barbed, rocky, inhospitable place that essentially keeps everyone away by being difficult t...

I try not to focus on food. I don’t like discussing it. I certainly don’t write about it. Why would I? My palate is about as advanced as a caveman’s. And, much like a caveman, I prefer simple, wholesome, nourishing sustenance, which, until recently, I typically scarfed...

It’s official. I’m acting again. Ever since I was five-years-old, I’ve been in love with the stage. All through elementary, middle and high school, I was a thespian. I tell people I gave it up because I made a decision to focus on athletics (at that point, I was huge i...

I never expected to make the transition to writing memoir.  As a long-time novelist, I was used to fabricating stories – as opposed to recounting them.  But then I realized that the most memorable, most “true,” most evocative parts of the novels I was writing were base...
