So as most of the modernized world knows by now, Pickleball is a thing. But not merely a thing. A thang. Your mom is playing it. My mom is playing it. Your mom’s mom is playing it. My mom’s mom is … eh, dead. But were Marta Herz not dead,

Upcoming book signings

So I’ve never aspired to be famous, because fame seems to truly suck. But—one thing that doesn’t suck about fame is you 100% know people will turn out for your book signings. That’s why people like Oprah and Will Smith can do a 40-book tour and sell thousands upon thousands

As I type this I’m sitting inside a tiny cafe in Fort Stockton, Texas. The name of the place is Glitzy’s Brew Coffee Shop. It’s the best (and only) java joint in town, and it’s as quaint as can be: T-shirts for sale, country music playing from a nearby speaker,

I’ve got a revamped site

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve finally undergone a revamping. Why? Multiple reasons. First, because it was time. Second, because a few years ago I made the awful mistake of hiring a designer who butchered everything and killed my dreams. Third, because I have a book coming out later

The fraud

So I’ve recently had a bunch of people from my old dwelling of Putnam County, N.Y. urge me to return to the topic of Tatiana Ibrahim, the bonkers Carmel resident leading the charge against Critical Race Theory, and liberals, and books, and Chips re-runs, and any educational element that she
