As I imagine most people had, I’d first heard of The Thin Man, and its main characters Nick and Nora Charles, because of a series of films that were released during Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Last night, I attended the Blank Canvas Project party at the Hotel on Rivington, sponsored by Modelo Especial, COMPLEX Mag, and Puma. It was nominally a Fashion’s Night Out party, but really it was just an excuse for beautiful people to come together, drink free beer, and have a great time. The impetus behind Blank [...]

Every day, someone tweets or emails or otherwise messages me to let me know that they’ve read my novel GUESTLIST.

If you didn’t make it, though, never fear. I got you. Head on over to soulhead.com and read my concert recap. As always, Ron Worthy [...]

  This morning, when I checked my Twitter @replies, I saw that my friend, the cereal loving DJ Heat, had tweeted she was reading my debut novel GUESTLIST.  Of course I was happy that she was reading my novel, but I wasn’t surprised. After all, DJ Heat lives in America’s Most Literate City. Washington, D.C., [...]
