Learning to smile through the fire helps to enervate the painful burn. -JSC


Background Information

I have lived on the sheer edge of sanity. There are “mistakes” or perhaps “wrong turns” that many people ignorantly take pleasure in choosing, but I whole-heartedly chose to create catastrophe, destruction – an overall abomination to stable life. I spend most of my spare time describing the chaos that accompanies drug addiction. Maybe warning others of the perilous certainties involved in making the deadly choice to use or sell drugs will make up for the many emotional and spiritual deaths I caused as a drug trafficker.

Major Influences: Ruby Kathelyn Cox-Press (my grandmother, also a writer); Dorothy Parker, satirical writer, author, poet; Emily Dickenson (no description required nor worthy); an English teacher, Mrs. Linda Yessick, who made me love correct grammar usage; Oscar Wilde (again, no description required nor worthy), Sylvia Plath; Stephen King; Susan Glaspell, Alice Walker; Stokely Carmichael (speeches: Black Power, 1966), Actually... I believe I have too many major influences to list them here :)
