READERSHIP INTERESTS: My top 10 posts from 2014-2017 pertain to parenting, European travel, expat life/humor, and Christmas markets.  Some of the posts: Weaving, Hitting, Learning; the Fairy Tale Route with a 5-Year-Old: Keepin’ it Real; 1st Grade in Germany: A Year in Review; and 14 Things You Need to Know About European Hotels.  There is new interest from RV travelers.

Use the form below to contact me about your affiliate program or advertising to an audience of travelers, ESL learners, expats, etc.  My blog is small, but I am gaining visits each month.  There will be an ESL-related launch in fall 2017 that will draw an international audience.


the day flash couldn't even, the flash series

I am currently available for readings of my recently-released children’s book, The Time Flash Had the Best Day Ever. The second book in the series, The Christmas Flash Couldn’t Even, will be released on 24 November 2017; I will be available for readings of both books after then.  To keep up with my readings and events, visit the Flash Series website,

Please contact me if you are interested in sponsoring a specific trip relevant to my activities (this could include RV travel, travel with children, travel with dogs, etc.). You’ll be listed on a page of sponsors (with your logo and a link, if you choose), and you’ll get shouts out on social media when you commit to sponsoring, as well as throughout the trip.

When time allows, I will consider writing guest posts for your blog.  I have written contributor posts for Germany, Ja! and Engchik.  Some examples can be found here.

I will consider, but not pay for, guest blog posts about travel, ESL, foreign languages, and children’s books.  I have turned down requests if the guest blogger’s website is riddled with grammatical errors. Contact me with your ideas!

I typically allow relevant websites to republish my blog posts.  In the past, my posts have appeared on expat and travel sites, but I am willing to consider other genres of websites that have relevance.  For a few examples, click here.  Please have the courtesy to contact me when quoting me in your posts, articles, or books (yes, someone is quoting me in an upcoming expat book!); or when using my tweets, etc.  Use the contact form below.

I occasionally review books and will consider reviewing products relevant to my experience, e.g. travel, Germany, expat life, and language.  Please provide a copy of the publication and contact me for details on whether I will charge $10 for the reading, or do it pro bono. If I rate the book at least 3 stars, I will post to Goodreads and Amazon, and up to 3 additional places you might prefer; I will include a review on; and I will link to at least one of the reviews via social media. I will not post ratings lower than 3 stars. The last two solicited book reviews I did were 4-star reviews.  If I reject your request for a review of any product, I’m probably just not feeling it. Please do not contact me inviting me to pay for your product at a discount and then review it.


Past invited talks include The Importance of Learning Foreign Languages; My Experiences as an Arabic Cryptolinguist, and Applying Linguistics to the Real World; and Iraq and the Iraqi Dialect.  I am not actively seeking speaking engagements, but am open to requests.

Thank you for your interest in partnering with Karilogue, LLC, and I look forward to hearing from you!
