Current interests: Encouraging you to donate money to The Offing (help us get rid of submission fees & pay our writers better!);  long discussions about sleep remedies (favorites are Lucky's melatonin and documentaries); thinking about the moment in the Tim Burton Batman where the Joker comes into the art museum listening to "Partyman" by Prince and then destroys all the art with his crew, but one painting; making pro and con lists about getting a third cat; re-watching The Good Place; raising my house plants to be exemplary plants; telling people which books have made me cry in public, which books have made me laugh in public; and real and fake stories about hero dogs.
