Richard Neal Huffman announced the release of his latest book. Richard said of
the Kelly’s Way, “Mitchell Kelly seemed to always be in the sights of trouble. Maybe it was his demeanor. Maybe
it was his hardened looks. Many had told him he always looked pissed off. Whatever the reason Mitch’s trek through life
led him on a long hard road. Nevertheless, he found he felt compelled to do things his way, even when others chose the easier
route. Kelly’s Way is what I term a ‘factional’ story of a young man going through life’s challenges
and doing it his way. I use the term ‘factional’ because the story is one of fiction but has much fact to it.
I’m sure you’ll enjoy, Kelly’s Way. I know I enjoyed writing it.”
