About This Book

Because my books are so realistic, stimulate the mind, and the discussions come from true-life situations, many readers have asked me if my books are about me. There is some of the author in each book he or she writes. My stories basically come from everyday life. My themes are taken from wherever I feel there is a need for someone to open up to feelings or express pain that might not be dealt with because of the extremity. We must realize that we are living in a graphic, pain-ridden world. A world that is changing faster than we care to accept. A world that has become more visual and imperfect than ever before, but nothing will be remedied if we try to keep our heads in the sand and pretend that nothing is different. There are too many immature and irresponsible individuals selling or indulging in strong drugs, alcohol, playing house, and suffering with AIDS and other harmful STDís due to promiscuity and ignorance regarding sex, sexuality, intimate crimes, and narcotic involvement. Ignorance and tunnel vision are not antidotes. Letís not remain ignorant. Letís stop being afraid. Letís stop saying, NO and turning our backs on those who need us because we believe that this type of behavior or epidemic can only happen to a certain kind of person. Letís stop saying that we canít change everybody and begin to help SOMEONE. Letís stop leaving all of the responsibility of correction in the hands of institutions and programs that we believe are available for people with problems of this nature. The truth is someone who is reaching out to you may never make it to these sources. There are times when an institution might be the answer and times when just talking on a one on one basis is necessary. In any event, the right words can make a positive impact in someoneís life forever. Just think about the things that you would love to discuss or confess, but you would only be comfortable doing so with a select few, or an elect individual. Then, put yourself in someone elseís shoes whose problem or problems are the! same as yours or more severe. This might help you to choose the option of reaching out or ignoring the problem until it goes away.
