Frequently Asked Questions
When do you put up new blog posts?
Whenever I have something to say and some time to say it. Sometimes that’s twice in a week. Sometimes I don’t add anything for a year. Things get busy with a full-time job and 47 side projects.
Do you accept guest posts?
Nope. I get an endless stream of people offering to write stuff for this website, and I don’t even look at them. This is my personal space here, and I write all of it. The same, by the way, goes for Tea With Gary.
I found this animal poop on my lawn. Can you identify it?
It’s a venomous Mongolian spitting lizard. Run. RUN!
Seriously, though, it’s difficult to ID animal scat from a photograph, and that simple question may take a a lot of my time (and yours, too) to answer. If you know your local game warden, they can probably give you an off-the-cuff answer because they know the animals in your area.
When is your next book coming out?
I love writing and haven’t put a book out in a few years, but that’s not at the top of my list right now. Believe me, though, faithful followers of my blog and my oft-neglected social media will be the first to know when I have a new book ready.
Are you looking for speaking engagements right now?
I’m not actively looking, but I generally end up with a handful of speaking gigs every year. I emcee events, moderate panels, do guest appearances on podcasts, talk about a variety of subjects from tea to animal poop to closed captioning, and do classroom visits.
