Survivor I Changed the Rules Part 1 available via kindle
Therone Shellman the elder of four children who were taken away from their mother when he was four and thrown into the NYC foster care system. In and out of different homes he and his sister went. He was a child thinking about adult issues like survival and having to look out for his younger sister. At the age of fifteen dissatisfied with the dysfunctional parents who adopted them both, and a school system he felt was biased he turned his back on both and sought the streets. From hustling at fifteen, to pulling stick ups at sixteen, Shellman found himself at the age of seventeen being sentenced to ‘four to twelve” years in prison.
In an honest and brutal way Shellman tells his life story from a powerless child to a power crazed and misdirected youth, survival of the fittest on the streets and in some of the roughest prisons in New York State. Throughout the story you witness his search for self peace and spiritual growth as he sought to balance his troubled life which would ultimately lead him through real life threatening situations where by chance and a little wit he would overcome time and time again. And finally some way some how an awakening rose up within him to change his life and write stories which would help others.
"Survivor" I Changed the Rules is not just a memoir or biography, it is a testament about how strong the human spirit is and the ability within all of us to rise above the chains which imprison us.

“ISLAND BEAUTY is the best piece Marlene have ever written. She have really matured as a writer. I think it would even make a good movie. There is great suspense and conflict. Marlene shows life and how it really is, even when we think we have good friendships, life can throw us a curve ball. I really enjoyed reading her story it was great, the tone was good and it was exciting. Keep up the good work!”
