My Name is Jamie. My Life in Prison


My life is pure agony.

     I really screwed things up for myself. I was sent to prison in 2006. This is not where I want to be, although I didn’t have any concrete plans for my life. I was happy that I wasn’t in juvenile detention anymore but I didn’t have a chance to make any plans and was living day to day. I didn’t know how to make plans.

Two chapters from my New Book, InsideOut

If anyone has been to my other blog  – I have a section on the right of each blog that lists the posts from both sides.  If you’ve been there then you might know the story of Jamie Cummings, one of the fathers of one of my grandsons who has been locked up in prison for the last 9 years, with 8 to go.  This is the reason I started the other blog, to print his many letters to me and categorize the different subject matter to write a book.  I started that book about a month or so ago.

I thought I would post 2 chapters here.  One is the first chapter and one is  random chapter.  Since each prison issue is a different chapter, the order of the chapters won’t be decided until they are done.  I’m going to put the “add contact form” at the bottom for those of you who would like to be added to the list of people who may be interested in getting the book when it is completed, or use it if you would like to receive any further chapters I may post.  Otherwise, leave a comment.  Let me know what you think. Don’t forget to click on those pretty yellow stars, too.  Your feedback is important to me.

InsideOut now changed to “Inside the Forbidden Outside”
