51, NYC is my base, but I kinda roam. I sublet my apartment in the Village two years ago and have been traveling and writing.

What do you do for work?
I write.

What’s the last great book you read?
Less, by Andrew Sean Greer. Howled aloud.

What’s your favorite new discovery?

Tell us something surprising about yourself. 
I named Karamel Sutra ice cream for Ben and Jerry’s. Free coupons as long as it’s on the shelf! We are at 17 years.

What’s your vice?  
DIET COKE! I am addicted. Very specific rules: With caffeine. Gotta be in a can—the larger 12-ounce size, not the baby ones. Need to hear that Pavlovian pop! And none of this plastic bottle nonsense, though the glass bottles are OK (though they are not big enough).  

Worst dating story?
See my book! It’s all in there: engaged to a pathological liar who went to jail. Lovely tale.

Favorite thread ever?
I have been obsessed with the threads on the alleged plagiarism in Jill Abramson’s Merchants of Truth.

Where can we find you?
My website.
