Biography of boy to man experiences based on real life events. A study of one man's success and failures in relationships and career opportunities.


Born into near abject poverty in Jersey City young Sterling Steel, out of necessity, grew up quickly, and after a debilitating lingering illness made the decision as a teen, to flee to a relatively secure and safe country life in Virginia. After a disappointing tempestuous marriage, he took his two young children to far aff Texas where he eventually married again and raised five children.

Sterling, known by then as "Scott," entered law enforcement and rose from relative obscurity as a deputy on the Gulf Coast to the position of small town Chief of Police. He was admonished early on as a cop to "Do right" but had problems trying to distinguish what was "right" in the very real world of vindictive behavior and corruption in Texas law enforcement and small town politics. Scott suffered a devestating acid burn injury to his vocal chords in a chemical plant mishap. He fought to overcome speech problems and in time was able to speak almost normally again.

All children grown and gone provided the "green light" for Scott and Miss Ellie to realize a desire to re-locate to Virginia. Hardships ensued, car wreck, stroke, death in the family and other complications had to be overcome, and they were. Scott finished his career in law enforcement as an administrator in a rural Sheriff's Office still at war with corruption but wise enough to fight from the "shadows." 


The fact that I had earned the distinction of making the most Driving While Intoxicated arrests was soon to have an adverse affect on my career, not because the arrests were questionable, they were not. The conviction rate for persons charged by me for DWI was over 95%. I unwittingly stumbled into the nasty world of Texas small town politics, completely unaware of the repercussions. After all that had happened to me so far, I still trusted and was certain that "right was right," I WAS WRONG!
