More About the Author
Dave Fox is an award-winning travel and humor writer. He has lived in Norway, England, and Turkey, and visited more than 50 countries on five continents. He currently lives in Singapore.
"I'm fascinated with the psychology of travel," Dave says, "...with how we view ourselves when we're in a foreign place."
In 2004, Dave won the Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop Book Proposal Contest sponsored by the University of Dayton, Ohio. His resulting collection of travel humor essays, "Getting Lost: Mishaps of an Accidental Nomad," was originally published in 2006 by AuthorHouse Books. A second, re-edited and improved edition was published in 2008 by Inkwater Press, along with Dave's second book, "Globejotting: How to Write Extraordinary Travel Journals (and still have time to enjoy your trip!)"
A former news anchor for Wisconsin Public Radio, Dave has contributed to books by Rick Steves and Lonely Planet. He also guided tours in Europe for Rick Steves' travel company from 1995 to 2011. His writing has appeared in travel magazines such as Transitions Abroad, Trips, Big World, and Silver Kris (Singapore Airlines' in-flight magazine), and in newspapers including the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Portland Oregonian, Dallas Morning News, and Wisconsin State Journal. He has appeared on the History Channel travel program, Weird U.S., as an authority on Scandinavian-American culture, and has been an opening speaker for Princess Märtha-Louise of Norway.
Dave's travel journaling classes have been recommended in the Wall Street Journal. He is available to teach classes in travel journaling, humor writing, and a variety of other topics, and to deliver humorous keynotes that are both laughter-inducing and inspiring.
In 2011, Dave moved to Singapore where he is currently based. He offers online travel and humor writing courses, and has founded Globejotting.com, his "home for global storytelling," featuring travel and humor tales, and tips to help others write their own stories.
