I wanted to drive across the country for more than a decade, but like Kerouac said, I was “always vaguely planning and never taking off.” But when work left me burned out and more than a little lost, I resigned and spent the next three months wandering and blundering across the country.
I’m writing a book to tell that story, but it’s more than that. It’s about questions of identity and belonging, pieces of American history, and unexpected encounters with unforgettable characters, all set against the backdrop of America’s cities, small towns, and stunning natural beauty.
In the meantime, sign up to my newsletter to receive book updates, giveaways, and miscellaneous nonsense.

You probably figured this out by now, but if you’re looking for Seth Martin, visual effect artist for the Muppets, I’m not him.
