I'm the co-author of The Happy Book, The Secret Me Book, The You and Me Book, and The Little You, Big Me Book. Meg Leder and I wrote them together. We went through a lot of index cards and foil star stickers.
From 9-5 (and sometimes later) I'm the US marketing and PR director for a book publisher.
On the train to and from work, I'm writing or reading.
It's also worth knowing that for two summers I attended stand-up comedy camp for gifted and talented kids. My signature routine was a line-by-line re-creation of Emo Philips' Live from the Hasty Pudding Theater album. That and the time I dropped an air conditioner out of my apartment window are my two favorite stories to tell people at parties.
