I've had some success getting published with nonfiction, at least as far as newspaper articles go. For several months I've been a regular monthly columnist for The Intermountain Commercial Record, writing on topical subject such as the subprime mortgage mess, bankruptcy and real estate investing. Last month an article I wrote was the feature story in TriHive, a quarterly publication for the triathlon community. The article, entitled Clydesdales and Athenas -- Setting Their Own Pace is a look at the problems faced by Clydesdale athletes, those who weigh over 200 lbs. for men and 150 lbs. for women. It seems to have gone over well. The newspaper was in the goodie bag of all the participants at the Salem Spring Triathlon (see post on "Triathlon", below).
But I remain unpublished in the fiction arena. I have one book completed and out to publishers. The Cain Covenant is Raiders of the Lost Ark for Mormons. Hopefully someone will pick up on it. I have two other books in the works, one a novel of the early 20th century and the other a nonfiction work about the value of Scouting for today's youth.
