I just found out (by accident) that my recent article about Dave Kiley is online. I haven't even seen the magazine yet. (Haven't seen a check yet either.)
I've written about Kiley, a wheelchair sports superstar, several times in different contexts. This is a feature profile for New Mobility magazine, catching readers up on the most recent incarnation of a very interesting life.
Keep in mind that the story is written for a wheelchair-using readership, so Kiley's paraplegia is just a fact of his life, not an ongoing tragedy. I stopped pitching these stories to mainstream magazines long ago, because I find the "overcoming adversity" template pretty dull.
