Just yesterday I found out my memoir Blissful Thinking has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, which means I get to say Pushcart Prize nominee forever. I'm so chuffed about this, that fact alone could be my whole bio. But wait, there is more.
I'm also an award-winning screenwriter (watch My Dinner With Steve here) and the author of two memoirs including American Lady Creature: A Feminist Reckoning in Qatar. (NPR said, “It’s like Eat, Pray, Love, only funny.” | Buy that one here.)
I was once simultaneously the religion editor for an LGBTQIA+ paper, dating columnist for an alt newsweekly, and bridal editor for a society rag. My writing has appeared in The Rumpus, Shondaland, Insider and The Washington Post among numerous other outlets. If you can believe it, I'm currently a guest host for the Home Shopping Network, and run the monthly storytelling show, True Stories.
