Thanks for stopping by. I wear many hats. Here are some of them: I am the founding Editor-In-Chief of Belt magazine and publisher of Rust Belt Chic Press. I am writing The History and Uncertain Future of Handwriting (Bloomsbury USA, Fall 2014). I am founder of The Thinking Writer, Writer-In-Residence at Oberlin College and an elected member of the board of the National Book Critics Circle. I have published articles in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Wired and many other publications. I ve appeared on NPR’s Weekend Edition, The Diane Rehm Show, Talk of the Nation and elsewhere. My book A Skeptic’s Guide To Writers’ Houses, has been hailed as “a remarkable book: part travelogue, part rant, part memoir, part literary analysis and urban history.” The Wall Street Journal called it “relentlessly witty.” I also published and co-edited Rust Belt Chic: The Cleveland Anthology in September 2012: it’s on its third printing. I live in Cleveland, Ohio and am the charmed mother of a very funny teenager. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
