She wrote a series of satirical plays that lampooned British colonial leaders and their policies, especially Governor Thomas Hutchinson – four years before Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence!
She participated in the Boston Tea Party and boycotts against British imports, eventually becoming a leader of anti-British activity in her home town of Plymouth.
Warren Adams enjoyed an accomplished medical career that saw him retire in the late 90s to devote his attention to bookbinding and oil painting.

Warren credits much of her success as an actress to the support she received from family and friends. Her father was an influential militia colonel while James Otis Warren, her elder brother was an outspoken lawyer who led Patriot revolts against British taxes and regulations in the 1760s.
Mercy Otis Warren quickly made her mark by writing satirical works aimed at the British government and key officials in Massachusetts. Her first play, “The Adulator”, premiered in 1772 before publishing two others titled Defeat and The Group in 1773.
Through her political activism, Warren became friends with Samuel Adams who helped nurture her into becoming a woman of intelligence and strong moral convictions. Encouraged to write an American Revolution history book by Adams himself – although its poor sales meant Adams wrote several harsh letters criticizing Warren for writing it and telling her “history is not for ladies”.
Warren Adams currently boasts an estimated net worth of $20 Million and currently plays basketball with Oklahoma City Thunder of the NBA.
His net worth consists of salary, endorsements and assets accumulated over his successful basketball career – earning him one of the top 100 highest-paid athletes globally.
He has also established a charity trust in New Zealand called Sports Pathways Trust that provides pathways and platforms for students to build their basketball legacies.
He owns another venture in Patagonia where he has created three streams of income: ecotourism (using a vacation club/membership-fee model), land brokerage and carbon offset sales to schools and corporations. Although still early stages, this venture appears promising enough that cash flow should become positive soon.
