Blogging in Bed Can Lead to Nightmares

Blogging in Bed Can Lead to Nightmares

My column in the Chattanooga Times Free Press today. 


Public reading!

Reading at Meacham Writer's Workshop last year

I’m excited to be reading at River City Sessions at The Camp House in Chattanooga Friday, Oct. 11 at 6:30. I’ll be reading an excerpt from Good Bones: A Memoir of Sex, Death and Real Estate. The chapter is called Rollercoaster Road and the excerpt is about unwittingly (well, at first) helping a landlord evict a family of four from a ramshackle house I hoped to rent. I will be sharing the stage with poet Kemmer Anderson. Come hear!

Salon 604 is Tonight!

Tonight is the fourth (or is it the 6th?) installment of Salon 604, where we get together with 18 of our closest friends and talk about Something Really Interesting. It all happens in our living room for two magical hours once a month. Tonight’s theme: Do you believe in magic? What’s your stand on coincidence, serendipity, kismet? Is a cigar ever really just a cigar? What does it mean, “If you build it they will come?” Will they really? Always? And who are “they”? Previous topics have covered “What is family?” “What’s the meaning of work and what is hedonism?” “If you won the lottery (enough money for the rest of your life, let’s say)–after you were finished funding your pet projects and buying stuff and giving money to friends and family–what would you do with your life and time?”
