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.
Hi, I noticed that we have common interests and we can chat anytime you like! You should see this e-book on chakras, karma-yoga, and an amazing new discovery in telekinesis. Let me know what you think of it whenever you get a chance. Also, pass it along to friends who you think it may also help! Here is the link:
Thanks CJ: I'll check out your MySpace page. I do have a space there, too. I hope you'll pick up the novel, too. Tomorrow I am off to Falmouth, Maine (Home of LL Bean) to do a book reading. If you have any writing you wish to send my way, please do so. Peter
OK, CJ: Let's engage in a conversation about writing. It's great you intend to take it up and get your first novel published. I just did that after years of rejections. The novel is HUNTING THE KING. It just hit the bookstores this month. And I am dying for your opinion. HUNTING follows archaeologist Molly O'Dwyer into war torn Iraq in search of the remains of Jesus. Watch the YouTube book trailer if you have the chance. It will give you a powerful sense of the novel. Then, hold forth. And share your own writing with me. Peter
