I once faced the rest of my life in prison and served nearly a decade in some of America's worst penitentiaries where inmates were murdered with prison-made machetes. While locked in a cell and not knowing if or when I would ever leave, I reflected on my life and decided to abandon crime and educate myself. I read eighteen hours a day and taught myself the writer's craft by reading the world's greatest classics while examining each line, sentence, and paragraph for style and structure. I also studied law and reversed my own conviction from prison while helping plenty of other inmates. Before being released, I was asked by the prison administration what I was planning to do with myself when I got out. By then, I had read thousands of books, had taught myself how to write, and had written a novel; I told them that I was going to become an international bestselling author. Everyone at the table broke into hysterical laughter. Today, I'm an international bestselling author and my books have been translated into twenty languages. I also created, wrote, produced, and hosted a series for Discovery Channel about maximum security prisons around the world. I hope you enjoy my books and documentaries.
