For forty-four years, Ron Singer ( was a teacher. His career began with the Peace Corps in Nigeria (1964-67) and ended at Friends Seminary, a Quaker-affiliated K-12 school in New York City (1976-2008). When Singer left teaching, it was to travel to various countries in Africa to interview pro-democratic leaders for a book. The result was Uhuru Revisited (Africa World Press/Red Sea Press, 2015), which can be found in over 100 libraries around the world. All told, Singer has now published ten books, in several genres. Most recently, he has also published about a dozen stories, with two main subjects: sport, games, and society; and the politics of totalitarianism. The stories in the second group have been collected in Not on My Watch.
