Editing My Book (Book Update)


Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to give everyone an update on my book titled “100 Years, A Journey to End a Vicious Cycle.” I am on the final stages of the editing process. Everything appears to be on schedule. The book cover design is already complete. Everything is coming together. I am really looking forward to the finished product. This book sheds light on the repeated cycle of prison within our society. I believe that this book will help some of the younger generation when facing peer pressure of drugs and criminal behavior. I am excited to see this movement of breaking the cycle  come to life through this book.

100 Years, A Journey to End a Vicious Cycle

100 Years!

100 Years!

This book is  a true story of how one man attempts to end the cycle of prison in his family. Mark’s family wasted more than one hundred years in prison. Mark shares some of his most personal parts of his life in order to prevent others from experiencing some of the same things. Mark understands that there are a number of other families with multiple family member in prison. This problem isn’t isolated to Mark’s family but is a community as well as a society issue. This is much more than a street, drugs, or crime story. This is a story of courage, determination and faith as Mark makes positive changes in his life. After serving more than a decade in prison for drugs, Mark was released and had a new perspective on life. He went on to make significant changes in his life. He didn’t allow the tags or stigmas of being an ex-felon to hold him back. There were a number of challenges that he faced when seeking employment but he continued in each instance. This is a must read and has the potential of making a significant difference in our world. The book is scheduled for release in March or April 2015.


The BooK: 100 Years, A Journey to End a Vicious Cycle


Good Day Everyone,

I wanted to give everyone an update on my upcoming book title “100 Years, A Journey to End a Vicious Cycle.” I am a first time author writing a nonfiction memoir about the continued cycle of prison within my own family. When I was a teenager I was involved with drugs and the life of the streets. I ended up spending a lot of time in prison. My dad, younger brother, a few cousins, and myself have all been in prison. We collectively wasted over 100 years in prison. There are a number of people with multiple family member in prison. This is a serious problem that needs to come to an end. I will share my experience of dealing with this as well as my journey to bring this cycle to an end. My goal is to prevent others from experiencing prison by making wise decisions. I was released from prison ten years ago and have made a number of positive changes in my life. I now wake up in the morning with the attitude of wanted to set a good example for others to follow.
