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.”
