I'm a Columnist!

Woohoo! At long, long last, I have finally been able to parlay three of my interests/pursuits into one venture. I have a passion for writing (as you may know), I've always wanted a column somewhere, anywhere (which I could translate into a book[*], the real long-term goal here) and I've always been fascinated by surnames and their origins.

Well then, I've killed three birds with one stone! has given me my big break. They'll publish monthly my column on surnames.

Here's how it works:

1) Read column:
2) Enjoy.
3) Submit name:
4) Leave the hard work to me.

Comments/encouragements welcome!

[*] Anyone know a literary agent? I'm actually halfway done writing a book on another topic, and I need someone to throw me a bone. Last tally: 100 queries, 35 rejections, but I'm still marbim b'simcha. :-)
