  • The above photo is from my first public, professional solo reading this past year at The Talking Stick in Venice, CA.

    This is the story of a woman named Teresa, a geek and freelance writer who has a problem going to sleep. :)

    Inspired by Adam Mansbach's "Go the Fuck to Sleep," as brilliantly read by Samuel L. Jackson.
