I write for quite a number of other websites and publications (the full list is in the About section) but quite a few have exclusivity on the articles.  This is a section with links to as much of my online work as I can find that can’t be reproduced on my website.  This page will always be a work in progress not just because I’m still writing for many of these sites but also because I’m still trying to find all of my work in the first place.
