Hey! I’m Tsh.
Part intrepid pilgrim and scrutinizer of cultural oddities, part whimsical homebody and charming troglodyte, my name really and truly is spelled correctly. You pronounce it as though there’s an i, like Tish, unless you’re a Starbucks barista, in which you pronounce it Lucy because you give them a fake name to avoid the hassle.
I’m a writer and podcaster who loves traveling and staying home, guacamole and pad thai (but not together), the Internet and the persnickety pulchritude of a really good pen, reading thick novels and a good old-fashioned TV binge, my Kindle and the smell of old books.
I’m currently spending most of my creative energy on book writing (next one out October 2020!), launching my new podcast called The Good List, and writing longer form + interacting with readers in Books & Crannies, my newsletter. The best way to keep up with me is via my free weekly email letter called 5 Quick Things, though I do chat from time to time on Twitter.
