A Little Moore About Me

October 19, 2011

Hello World!

I am well. I pray that you are too.

A little more about me: In 1987, at age 26, I was sentenced to 34 years to life for the 1986 murder of a drug dealer. Included in my sentence was the decree to pay $10,000 in restitution. One would would assume that after 25 I would have been able to pay a large dent in that amount. Well, as the majority of inmate jobs pay zero, nada, nothing, zlich, and those that do pay, pay only pennies per hour (seriously, pennies)—I still owe more than $8,000. As previously blogged, reduction of my debt is my goal, and that was the purpose of writing the novel A Thundering Wind. Proceeds from sales will go toward my obligation.

Prior to my short dead-end journey into the life of a drug dealer, I had graduated from the California State University at Chico with a degree in political science. I had completed one year of law school when an old high school "friend" came back into my life to offer me a way to make easy money. Easy my a—. There is nothing easy about taking a human being's life, destroying my future, which is now past, losing the love of my life, and crushing the hopes of dreams of my parents. —big sigh—

So what does one do when the end of all things occur?

I'll tell you next week. Please stay tuned.

Thanks for checking in on me.
