 Abba the rabbitAt the opening reception for the Pan Am, FM Charles Galofre, second board for the Miami Dade chess team, introduced himself. He had read Science, Math, Checkmate, noticed the photo on page 5, and remarked, That's a good photo of you and your bunny. I was happy that someone had finally noticed Abba. It's not easy to sit at a computer and write for hours, but Abba keeping me company makes writing less lonely and more fun. As I type this blog entry, he is sitting under the same black computer chair as in the photo. I pet him, then type, then pet him some more. My third book, Read, Write, Checkmate: Enrich Literacy with Chess Activities, will be published March 30, 2009.

Chess Quotes


And for the chess-player the success which crowns his work, the great dispeller of sorrows, is named "combination."
