Greetings from Phoenix (and no, smart ass, I did not take a wrong turn on the way to Scranton. Scranton was Thursday, Phoenix is today, and tomorrow I'll be in Boston, and then taking a few days' vacation, which means I won't be answering your emails for a little while, so please be patient. Also, I regret to inform you that I am useless in terms of advice on publishing childrens' books. It's a whole 'nother ball game, and I don't know a thing about it. .

So, to tide you over, in case you missed laughing at my last name on Jay Leno, check out the headline here. (And yes, I sent Jay a lovely autographed copy of the book with a note telling him how much funnier it would have been if he'd mentioned it. No response yet. Alas).

If you want to read an online interview with me, go here.

If you want to watch the Modern Humorist dog humping the fluffy yellow ball again, it's still right here.
