The best place to get the skinny on Yours Truly is The Nervous Breakdown, where I contribute an occasional blog.

That's where you'll learn about my reluctant reverance for Billy Joel, my photogenic deficiencies, and things most people like that I don't.

Or, if you share my astrological bent, you can analyze my chart. I have a grand trine involving four—count 'em, four—planets.

As for the David Copperfield crap, I grew up in Madison, N.J., went to Georgetown University, and lived in New York for ten years. I now reside in Highland, N.Y., with my family.
