My Photo

  • I'm a writer, journalist, and the editor of The Gambit, the alt-weekly newspaper in New Orleans.

    Journalism: My work has appeared in The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, The Globe & Mail (Canada), The Times- Picayune (New Orleans), The Oregonian, and Willamette Week, as well as in magazines including Details, Vogue, Publishers Weekly, and Portland Monthly.

    Publishing: Tight Shot, my first novel, was nominated for an Edgar Award by the Mystery Writers of America. Its sequel, Hot Shot, was roundly ignored by everyone, but was a far better book. I'm also a member of the National Book Critics Circle.

    Stage: I was a member of the Groundlings and Circle Repertory West in Los Angeles, and am a playwright (see "Stage" in the right-hand rail).

Hi. I just happened upon this site and felt compelled to respond. As a writer, I respect your opinion. I really do wish that writers (and other creative people: musicians and actors, for example) got more respect from our society. Seems to me that most creative people struggle financially until they "make it big," at which time they are overpaid for their work. Seriously, should writers, actors and musicians make more than firefighters?

However, having said that, I need I point out that bloggers typically don't get paid by most sites, i.e., wordpress, myspace, facebook, etc. If the Huffington Post were to begin paying bloggers that would result in their having to limit the number of writers who could participate. That would result in a kind of censorship too--by limiting the number of people who could express their opinions on the site. I think the purpose right now is to provide an opportunity for a variety of people to blog on the site. As with most blog sites, the reason people submit blogs is to get their voice heard. Many writers are happy to get published on Huffington Post (as well as many other sites or publications) even though we're not being paid just because we want to get our names and our work seen. What's wrong with that?

The article says that due to the uncooperative nature of the woman and the boy, they could only charge her with endangering a minor. No sex charges. She'll get a slap

on the wrist.


Your article is useful

Absolutely agree with what you reported. Your explanation was by far the easiest to

comprehend. I tell you, I usually get annoyed when folks discuss issues that they clearly

do not know about. You managed to hit the nail right on the head and rolled out everything

without complication. Hopefully, other people can take a cue. Will be back for additional.

Keep writing

Hi there I appreciated your post. I feel that it’s important when talking about diabetes to at least mention natural treatments that have been proven to be efficient in controlling high blood glucose. Various natural herbs can be including in a diabetics regimen that will help maintain a healthy glucose level.

Not sure I would personally do much for free. I can understand doing it for a purpose, but definitely not out of the kindness of my heart. Sorry but this is the world in which we live.

You have talked about issued that are debatable in a very subtle manner and informative way…good. How did you manage to do this is a big question. You have inspired me to work harder now.

One big problem if the Democrats go off the rails on a crazy train is that the GOP may go right back to its quasi-socialist and government-expanding ways (when it returns to power), without even a brief respite of talking about paring things back.

Not that even a contrite and rhetorically sound GOP can be trusted upon a return to power.

Excellently written article, if only all bloggers offered the same level of content as you, the internet would be a much better place. Please keep it up!

  • Booklist:
    "A worthy successor to Tight Shot, Allman's insider view of the seamier side of Hollywood is not only hip and entertaining but also has something serious to say about our insatiable hunger for tabloid thrills."

    Washington Post:
    "Barbed, breezy and often pretty and entertaining. Allman can be very funny, and Hot Shot complements nicely the less forgiving takes on Los Angeles as the future of us all. "



    "Allman turns a very sardonic pen loose on Hollywood's glitz-and-glamour crowd in this entertaining first novel... An impressive debut and an almost sure thing for a sequel."

    New Orleans Times-Picayune:
    "Allman clearly knows those of whom he writes. He's got L.A. nailed."

    Publishers Weekly:
    "Snappy debut... Readers will look for a sequel."

  • Patty Friedmann: <i>A Little Bit Ruined</i>

    Patty Friedmann: A Little Bit Ruined
    One of the first post-Katrina novels, and probably destined to be one of the best. Friedmann's sequel to Eleanor Rushing finds her crazy heroine still holding everything together after the storm (after a fashion), until she has to leave New Orleans and she falls apart physically as well as mentally. Mordantly, morbidly funny.

  • Tom Piazza: <i>Why New Orleans Matters</i>

    Tom Piazza: Why New Orleans Matters
    The best post-Katrina book I've read. In 150 small pages, Piazza explicates the New Orleans experience simply and beautifully. I'll be passing this one on to anyone who wonders "But why would anyone want to live there?".
