Currently self-employed as a writer, I hold degrees in History and Library Science. I put these skills to work on cocktail history and taxonomy in The Art of the Shim: Low-Alcohol Cocktails to Keep You Level and on the Bibulo.us blog. My first book, Discardia: More Life, Less Stuff, explored letting go of what doesn't make life awesome.

Creating the Bibulous bibliography of cocktail books

I didn't set out to make an annotated cocktail book bibliography. I was just, as one does, digging into 19th century cocktail books trying to determine the proportion of drinks of different strengths and if that changed over time. The problem with time-based research is that you have to be pretty sure that a given set of data actually comes from a particular time. And here my troubles began.

"The writing was life changing, but keep in mind that it's a "how-to" guide, so it's supposed to be practical instructions. And it is!

I was expecting the same advice about cleaning out your crap and maintaining a tidy house you see on every mummy b..." Read more of this review »

“There is no need to hold on to what's obsolete: One never loses what one tosses away deliberately.”
Dinah Sanders, Discardia

“As we mature and derive less of our sense of personal security from objects and more from our selves and our relationships, we gain both resilience and freedom.”
Dinah Sanders, Discardia: More Life, Less Stuff

“Get some perspective. A lot of things that may aggravate you only do so because you have the luxury of not wrestling with bigger issues. Today, be thankful for everything you have: being alive, your friends and family, your health, a roof over your head, something to eat, clean water to drink, indoor plumbing, heating, air conditioning, clothes, shoes, a job, and freedoms. Many, many people have it worse.”
Dinah Sanders, Discardia
