In the early 2000s, I made a commitment to work toward broadening my source of support. I knew that I had crossed over into the second half of my sentence. After 26 years, I would return to society. I thought about how I could build support and writing became my focus. Besides ghost writing more than a dozen books for other prisoners, I wrote the following books under my name:

  1. Drugs and Money (self published)
  2. About Prison (Wadsorth / Thompson / Cengage)
  3. Profiles from Prison (Greenwood Praeger)
  4. Inside Life Behind Bars in America (St. Martin’s Press)
  5. Earning Freedom (self-published)
  6. Success! The Straight-A Guide (self-published)
  7. Triumph! The Straight-A Guide series (self-published)
  8. Prison! My 8,344th Day (self-published)
  9. Success After Prison (self-published)
  10. Prison To Paradise (self-published)

Besides writing books, I wrote scores of articles for others to help bring attention to the work. It was my way of reaching out from the bowels of a federal prison to connect with society. By reaching out, I made a connection with John McReynolds and he published a nice review of my work, which you can see by clicking the link below.

Think about how you can use this strategy to build your career.
