Welford Street Miracles tells the stories of residents who lived In the 1100 block of Welford Avenue in “oil rich” Port Arthur, Texas from the Thirties thru the Eighties.
Welford Street Miracles is based on something you know something about. Something you experienced through the sense of life, of actual living, and that always makes for the best kind of writing. Its simplicity, its honesty in telling is evident not only in the lines but between the lines, and that’s when writing is at its best. You believe the miracle, and believing it you begin to see the characters and feel for them and hope for them spiritually. Into this group of people we have a main character. The prime subject wrought with a medical problem, brainwashed in his spiritual hierarchy, and skilled in the business world, whose struggles and accomplishments come to the forefront and whose encounter with a stranger ends in the greatest miracle of all.

The WRIT. Roger Jason Lee has been incarcerated since 1980. He has been refused parole on seven different occasions. In 2000 he was told that he would not be eligible to seek parole for seven years. He has maintained his innocence and becausehe has never admitted to attempted murder and expressed his regrets in a parole hearing, he remains in prison. His time in prison has been a model as he has learned skills that allow him to be certified as a Braille translator. He spends his days translating literary books and textbooks into Braille for the blind citizens of America. He knows that if he gives in and states his guilt and remorse that he will have to spend even more time because, as the system works, the parole board would state that he was just trying to please them by saying what they want to hear, so he could be found suitable for parole. And also that he should have had remorse from the beginning resulting in the board needing more time to evaluate his sincerity. Had he been able to admit guilt pre-trial and get aplea bargain for eight years, he would have been out and, no doubt, building a good life for himself and his family. A Writ was performed to be accepted by the courts. Roger's story is laid out herein and readers of his story and arrest have an opportunity to decide in a juror's, attorney's, or judge's shoes, the innocence or guilt in this Writ.
