Prison From The Inside Out tells the story of life in prison and how the justice system treats people. Why was this an important book for you to write?
I didn’t want to die taking my story with me – I wanted to free myself and telling my story was one way to do that. I started with journals, which made be realize I had to tell my story to my family and to you, and Simone gave me that opportunity.
What was the writing collaboration process like with Susan Simone?
It was like talking to my best friend from high school, an old friend. Simone has a great way of asking questions to draw me out.
What is one thing you hope readers take away from your book?
Freedom begins inside ourselves.
I appreciated the candid nature with which you told your story. What is one piece of advice you would give to your younger self?
Value your time more than you value money.
