When Dave is not busy helping kids become better writers or writing himself, he can often be found munching on insects! He is a true entomophagist!
Look for Dave on the National Geographic TV special “Mygrations: National Geographic Endurance Series” where Dave and 19 others follow the wildebeest migration across Africa. Only 13 make it to the end….will Dave????
