I did a LIVE show in Portland with Chelsea Cain at a Comedy Festival there. It’s a bit buzzy because of the mystery of me taping live. Sigh. Patrick Brady is not to be judged. But the show is so great. I can’t stop talking initially but, Chelsea Cain, famous author, is a Dungeons and Dragon Dork. IRL, she is the author of five best selling NYT thrillers described by the NY Times as, "steamy and perverse," which is being made into an FX series. She also wrote Confessions of a Teen Sleuth, a Nancy Drew parody. I read that. She’s smart, hilarious and, get this, a HUGE Dungeons and Dragons dork. It’s a good one. With stand up comedy, closing the show, from Barbara Holm

    I think she MIGHT have been saying that I should read her books. But, as I told her... her books are too scary. for reals.

    Maybe some "YA" is just well-written stories as good as any "adult" books no matter the label.

    Someone who plays AD&D and comics might realize that sort of "this is just for kids" label is kinda stupid.

    You were lovely as always Jackie, despite Chelsea Cain who was obnoxious and overly contrary.Always gracefully dorky :) Keep doing what you do!
