As I sit here alone shivering in the silent chilly twilight struggling to find the courage to look beyond the comfort of these prison walls and out there into that nearly forgotten world to meet some new people, the emptiness of the night reminds me of another night so long ago and the words someone spoke to me about overcoming your fateful fears.

Hello, my name is Sammie. I was 27 years old when I came to prison 25 years ago. During those immature days I lived a reckless life that involved hustling, drugs, violence and gansterism. I am sure social media has damned me to be a monster. That’s what motivated me to write a book about my life; how I was wrongly convicted; prison life and much more. Keep an...

It is to be considered, that the world is filled with very interesting people. And being that some of them are locked away it would be a good place to start.

Just like you I’m looking to hear or read from an interesting woman who’s not afraid to be herself and will enjoy talking about it.
