"I am confident that my writing will be a catalyst to help souls who are in negative downward spirals. I thank God every day for my parents and Grandmother’s encouragement, without it I would not be alive. I think that writing is the way for me to use my life experiences to help others know that they can get out of gangs, do some positive things that can make just as much money legally as selling drugs, themselves or others out.
For me it took a relationship with God to show me that there is a reason for my existence, a positive beautiful purpose. At this point in my life the only cuts I have to worry about are paper, and the only shots are my beautiful children’s immunizations.
Currently I am writing a story entitled “Street life to Housewife,” the title speaks for itself. I have four other books near completion. One is best described as ‘Murder she wrote for the hood.’ G-mama is a sixty eight year old, ex gang banger/ex hustler, who sits in her rocking chair solving crimes that cross her porch. She believes that the penitentiary ‘ain’t nothing but college for criminals’ and there is a way to do penance for your crimes that will make things right in God’s eyes. My goal is an eight book series.
I am close to completion on ‘God ain’t spelled Government.’ Alumni of Dominguez High School, Class of 77’ has leaked a government conspiracy at her twenty year class reunion. The Government does not know who she leaked to, so they set out to kill everyone who attended the reunion.
The most important book of all time is the Bible. Though I don’t claim to understand all of it, I find a lot of answers in these pages."

KR: A credit launderer. (Fraud)
AR: Just how difficult is it for Chill to resist making the same mistakes that sent him to prison in the first place?
