A colleague's advice: 'You should write a book'

       I have had the pleasure of crossing paths with Craig Greenlee many times. He has been a longtime contributor to the Winston-Salem Journal (NC) sports pages. I spent 20 years in the WXII-TV sports department in Winston-Salem.
       Usually, I’d see Craig at high school football or basketball games. Occasionally, I’d run into him at college games. But it wasn’t until a few years ago that I learned that Craig had been a member of Marshall University’s football team – the year before the plane crash and the year after.
       I immediately told him, “You should write a book.” He told me he was already hard at work on one.
       That book – November Ever After – is finally finished, and available.
       We often put ourselves in the position of “What if?”
       Well, Craig has lived with that “What if?” for over 40 years.
       I can’t wait to read it.
