Articles & Interviews

I hope you find my articles helpful and informative. If you are interested in re-printing an article in your publication, please contact me.

Sometimes my articles are re-printed in other publications. When this is the case, I list each instance of publication along with a link. For this reason, you will see some articles listed more than once. Sometimes it is an identical re-print, and sometimes the article has been revised for length (shorter or longer depending on word count limitations) or the content has been updated.
