December 20, 2008 at 11:57 pm 5 comments

ED NOTE: Within just a few houses I have Rich writing about his teaching experience in Africa and Kelly publishing another book Extreme Sports ( see below) – and an up coming E Book- Kelly tells me :

” it is published by FabJob.com, which is a company that publishes career guides for people wanting to break into a new and fabulous job. All of their guides are full of very specific, very practical advice to help people become successful in their newly chosen careers. A date of early 2009 would work for the publishing info and the title is How to Become a Fitness Club Owner.

AND Kelly has also been writing a play (more information to come so watch this space!) Freedom’s Run: A Stop On the Underground Railroad.

“It’s a play that focuses on real life heroes from 19th-century northern Ohio, Robbins and Eliza Burrell.

This married couple played a crucial role in helping slaves escape into Canada, and yet, they were never caught. Freedom’s Light shares one possible answer to the mystery of how they continued to be so successful in helping others create new lives for themselves

. The play will run during the first 3 weekends of May: May 1, 2 and 3; May 8, 9 and 10; and May 15, 16 and 17.

    Thanks much for putting up this info! As a minor correction — an error that I made! — the subtitle of the play will be a stop ON the underground railroad.
