I am Published, I Shan’t Perish

AD Cover

My first book is no longer imaginary. We have a publication date at last. The brilliant Doctor Bethany Poston, PhD and I wrote a chapter of McFarland’s A State of Arrested Development: Critical Essays on the Innovative Television Comedy out April 15, 2015.

Best of all, Arrested Development creator Mitchell Hurwitz wrote the forward. We’re in the same book, see.

Our essay is called “Families with Low Self-Esteem: The Fünke Dynamic.” The research was a grueling round of hilarity and psychological analysis. My deadline nightmares consisted of rewriting sentences while a “Blue Man” Tobias (David Cross) floated disembodied in the corner. I cannot wait for you to read it.

Pre-order on Amazon.
