So Far: My Life as a Comedy
A comedic memoir drawn from 9 years of stand-up sets as performed throughout Southern California, including appearances at Universal CityWalk's Jon Lovitz Comedy Club, Flappers in Burbank, and the World-Famous Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip.

Slated for publication this Fall.
[Available for download to any e-reader device, followed by a print edition.]
