Your Book Social Media Profile Awaits
We are now two weeks into 2014, and it is a good time to gauge where you are, as far as new year’s resolutions are concerned.
Millions of people vow to start each year by working out, eating healthy, quitting smoking, etc., but the majority give up on those commitments.
Why is this so?
Well, I am certainly no expert, but can only speak for myself.
First of all, I don’t even make any new year’s resolutions, because, quite frankly, I live the way I want to…

Today, I bring you the fifth chapter of my book, “Jew in Jail.”
It was time to go to big, bad Rikers Island, and see if I was ready to spend time with the toughest detainees New York City had to offer!
5. THE MOVE TO RIKERS ISLAND
Even though the next day was Saturday, I was taken on the first bus headed for Rikers Island in Queens. I remembered being there once before, about five years earlier, but only for a week until my…

This past Saturday marked nine years I have been home from prison, and being a free man is something that only those who have spent time behind bars can truly understand and appreciate.
Not being required to ask such simple questions, such as when to go to the bathroom and shower, or what time is permitted to visit the library or get exercise, is just the tip of the iceberg.
For me personally, I have more than merely the physical freedom that release from incarceration…

1. THE DAY THIS WHOLE NIGHTMARE BEGAN
My mother had asked me, the night before, what I was doing with that toy gun. She noticed it on the foot of the extra bed in my room, and I told her that I was going to give it to my friend Alan’s son as a birthday present. I lied to her. The truth of the matter was that I was an alcoholic, a drug addict, and a compulsive gambler, and I was planning to go into Manhattan the next day in order to rob a few dry cleaning stores.

I've written as a freelancer, and have completed a bunch of novels, and have also taught college full time and then for a prison program that was summarily closed by a Republican governor. One of my Smashwords novels, From Renata With Love, makes use of what I learned then from one of my inmate students.
I've published two novels on Kindle: Attila as Told to His Scribes, and I, Zerco, both set in the 5th century in or near the Roman…Continue

about his book: Lock Up Abroad contacted me to be on their show this year as they focus on Prison Life in the U.S. They want me to be in one of the final episodes to end with a redemptive theme. While being interviewed they asked me, “How much of your books are fiction?” I told them,…Continue

about his book: I wrote Race Riot to show the world that by sending people to prison for being addicted to drugs, we are breeding bigger criminals where gangs and violence are the calling cards. In prison a drug addict is bred into a displaced human being once released. While in prison, it gets politically racial and everything is solved with violence and gangs are…Continue
