Questions? Ask me anything!

Many of you have followed The Freewheeling Freelancer for almost seven years. We have rolled on two continents, written two serial novels and dozens of sea stories and vignettes, and learned much about the world.

Did you miss something? Are you curious?

Ask me anything. Leave a reply below, use the contact form, or email me.

I’ll share what I know. If I don’t know, I’ll let you know I don’t know.

If your question inspires a whole post, I’ll give you credit, using your first name. Please tell me if you want to remain anonymous.

Thanks to Christian for this Q&A idea, and I look forward to your questions.

Smooth roads and tailwinds,

JT
