How did you start writing?

I served prison time on drug charges. I turned my life around by going from addicted to drugs, to addicted to writing my experiences.

In Prison Riot, I was one of the only white inmates on the yard. I quickly found the biggest white inmate I could to work out with. We became friends with a handful of Mexican inmates from southern California who were heavily outnumbered by the northern Mexican inmates. When the riot kicked off, we helped out the southern Mexicans and were falsely labeled southern Mexican’s.

I’m inspired to show that incarcerating petty drug criminals in prison, is breeding an addiction into an affliction much harder to escape, for the inmates and the communities. Image

Tell us about your favorite character or what part of your book you liked writing the most?

I’m biased, B.J. is my favorite character. He represents the discarded drug addicts and orphans of poverty who strive with all their heart to find a redemptive way out.


My favorite part to write wasn’t the actual riot, I got busted up a little. We went to solitary confinement with over one hundred Mexicans and the prison administration put a blue stamp on our cell. We soon found out that stamp signified we were southern Mexicans! It was fun to write about how hard it was to prove we were white inmates just helping out our new friends.

I also help inspire other prisoners to make a change through writing and art. I give a voice to the voiceless as much as I can and am starting a clothing line that uses inmate art. When I get it all the way up and running I want to give a percentage to victim restitution so the inmates are giving back, and finding some level of redemption. Image

Tell us about your new book or a project you are working on?

I just had the opportunity to speak as a guest Lecturer at the University of California Irvine. The students were required to read one of my other books, Underdog. Now the Orange County Register is going to interview me so I’m excited about that!

Compare your books to other books.

If you like James Patterson or Elmore Leonard, you’ll love my books. I write fast paced crime thrillers from the inside of the criminal justice system out. Kirkus Discoveries Nielson Media related my first drug war novel Roll Call to the blockbuster movie Traffic. Image

  1. I saw that you are following my blog. Looking at your writing, I was intrigued because I grew up in Crescent City and remember when Pelican Bay Prison was built and driving past it every day to get to school.

    I’ll have to look into your books and see if they’re something I can introduce to my facility.
