Everyone has a dragon to slay. What’s yours?

 Autumn 2017 

Long Black Veil is now available in stores and on line!  And an Audio book too! The paperback should be available in January.

I’ve posted up in one place below links to the dozen or more podcasts and videos I recorded this spring.  They feature Faith Salie, Richard Russo, Susan Faludi, Anna Quindlen, Caitlyn Jenner, Miwa Messer, and more.

I spent much of this summer working on a new book.  And catching my breath after the hectic spring.

I’m writing a series of essays for the New York Times this fall; I’m collecting them here in case you miss them.

 As the 17-18 speaking schedule takes form, I’ll post details here.

In the meantime, enjoy the fall. Resist.  Persist. Prevail.  >&<
