Dear Gary

Since I love to write, and also help others, today's post is all about dispensing advice.
I may not know everything, and have surely made my share of mistakes in life, but over the past five years, nine months and four days, I feel like I have finally "righted my ship," and am now able to help others who might not currently be at their best.
I am clean and sober, working hard to promote my book, "Jew in Jail," speaking at meetings, writing this blog, consulting with clients over the phone, and am now ready, willing and able to devote some time to handing out advice on any subject that comes up, if anyone chooses to email me at, or contact me via this blog.
There are no topics off limits, and nobody should feel embarrassed about revealing whatever it is that is either bothering them, or they are having issues with.
I have been on both sides of the fence:  from successful journalist and television producer, to New York State prisoner, and am now back, as an author, blogger, and motivational & inspirational speaker, focusing on recovery from addiction, and know the value of having someone take another under their wing and show interest in helping that human being out.
We all have unlimited potential to be anything we desire in life, but sometimes obstacles occur that cause us to doubt ourselves and our ability to overcome them.
That is where I come in, and hope to provide the support that you need to get you back on track from this temporary delay on your road to greatness.
So put your pride in your pocket, and let me in.
I want to help you realize your full potential, and live the best life you possibly can.
You are definitely worth it!
If you haven’t read my book, “Jew in Jail” yet, I hope you do.
It is chock full of insightful information on how I was able to recover from my past addictions to alcohol, drugs and gambling while incarcerated, and go on to lead a happy and healthful life myself.
Until next time, everyone, have a great day, and week ahead!

Author Lord David Prosser

Hello, my name is David and I'm an author. If that sounds like the introduction of someone attending a meeting of the AA then that's how being an author feels sometimes. An addiction that you feel warrants a confession.

I have written and self published Four books to date.

My Barsetshire Diary  10916208853?profile=original

The Queen's Envoy 



More Barsetshire Diary 

                                             10916208662?profile=originalThe first three books are concerned with the life of a member of the gentry in the small village he's chosen to live in. The cat rules his life while his wife and daughter rule his wallet.

In the second book we visit him at his job accepted along with the title he inherited, that of Envoy to HM Government but instantly deniable. Since our hero is at a loss where women are concerned we see how he copes when faced with saving the Government some embarrassment but females are desperate to show their thanks. Is a stiff upper lip enough to save him? 

The first and third books take place after he's retired from active service but is put to work by the promises made on his behalf by his wife. See how he copes with judging the jam making competition when someone is determined to win at any price.

The fourth book is called Memoirs of a Superior and was dictated by Oscar the cat, or Superior as they like to be called. He wanted to share his personal adventures but also pass his wisdom on to kittens about how to control us Longlegs so that we serve the Superiors properly. I suggest any Longlegs buying this keep it out of sight. If your Superior reads it I won't be responsible for the consequences.

Become a better writer with - StyleWriter

Become a better writer today with StyleWriter, the award-winning writing and editing software that instantly transforms your writing into a plain English style that is clear, concise and readable. 

StyleWriter is an add-on to Microsoft Word to help you edit everything you write into a model of clear English. If you've used Microsoft Word's spelling and grammar checker, you'll notice MS-Word leaves behind grammar errors, style usage mistakes, and incorrect word choices. MS-Word also highlights false errors, especially with the grammar checker, making the process of writing very frustrating.

StyleWriter can help with any type of writing task; this includes technical manuals, business letters, web site copy, press releases, corporate white papers, legal documents, editorials, employee handbooks, and so forth.

Other so-called "writing enhancement programs" and English grammar checkers offer silly advice or duplicate Microsoft Word's existing spell and grammar checker. StyleWriter is different and more powerful than any editing software. StyleWriter marks up your document and shows you how to edit each sentence. You can click on any highlighted alternative to change the text in StyleWriter and Microsoft Word. Alternatively, with one click you can go to Microsoft Word to redraft the word, phrase or sentence. 

StyleWriter is the best word processing writing aid on the market. It teaches you to write in the style of top authors and journalists by checking every document for thousands of style and English usage faults. Many times more powerful than any other writing and editing software, StyleWriter improves your writing style instantly.

StyleWriter mimics an expert editor checking, cutting and rearranging your words to produce a clear and readable style. Even professional journalists and novelists use the program to polish their writing style.
