All Calicos Insane? This was published in, of all things, a
Danish cat magazine. I wish I had asked for a copy to be mailed to me,
but I was young and so happy to see my work in print that, well, I
didn't really get to actually see my work in print. The illustrations in
this article were drawn by me, and clearly show why I decided to go into writing, not illustration.
Cat Who Wouldn't Die. This is the first work I had published
where I actually got to see it on a printed page. It's a story about my
dear former cat Deckard and his brushes with death. It was published in
Cats of Our Lives," and I see that copies can be picked up on
Amazon.com for one cent each. So, buy one now as it will eventually
become very valuable when I am an Oscar winning novelist.
Lost Kitty Handbook, How to find your missing cat. This was
printed by an animal rescue society in upstate New York once, but sadly
the copy they mailed me got lost in the mail. This was some of my most rewarding writing, because to this day I get a nice email every month
or so telling me how they found their lost cat because of this article. I
don't think I'll ever be saving the world, but at least I saved a few
lost kitties. This article may be reproduced freely if it's

Ten global calamities - existential disasters facing the human race. This was published in a High School newspaper in the Philippines.Yes, I also like to write about disasters and such, my blog is titled Doug's Darkworld, not Doug's Puppyworld.
My American Civil War Quiz was published on this fine site: For God and Country
Colonialism's New Look For the 21st Century. My somewhat unorthodox look at a program to distribute cheap laptops to children in the developing world. This was the article that propelled me into the brave new world of being a professional writer. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but it's an exciting thing for sure.
