My second book, SORRY I’M LATE, I DIDN’T WANT TO COME is out in May 2019 in the US, the UK and the Netherlands (and soon in Russia, Germany, Korea and China). It’s about the year I spent: talking to strangers, performing stand-up comedy, travelling solo, trying out improv, going on friend dates and doing a bunch of extrovert-y things. It’s about being an introvert and trying to extrovert for a full year.
I interview brilliant people throughout the book who guide me through these nightmares.

I just started reading your book. Thank you so much for writing it. I love it! It is just what I needed. I was longing for a heart to heart, felt sad that I had no one to talk with, but found what I needed in your writing. I can’t thank you enough!!
