For those of you who are not familiar with rendez-vous, it is a cyber-interview, where the guest answers via email 5 questions, plus a self-introduction and eventually a 6th open question for anything he/she wants to add.

Rendez-vous will be posted on the site as well as immediately distributed via listserve to those who choose to register for this service. I try to have one interview per week but it is sometimes difficult to abide by a strict schedule as I do my best with very limited means and many of my guests are very busy.

To receive these items via email, you may join the Rendez-vous list-serve here: www.smokescreen.org/list/?rendezvous-announce
