I am the author and the creator of adifferentkindofstorybook. I have assembled, in my opinion, a very talented team. My little sister, Clarice Taylor is my editor and my illustrator. My baby sister, Yvonne Taylor is my illustrator. My friend, Keith Richardson is my producer. My friend, Alan Dix is my web guy. My friend Lynn Wiseman is my printer.
A couple of years ago I was having supper with my Mom and we saw a Glade air freshener commercial. At the end of the commercial the lower right hand corner of the screen rolled up and the announcer stated that “S.C. Johnson is a family company”. That statement grabbed me and I told my Mom that that is what our ministry was going to be. She smiled.
None of us have travelled on this publishing road before, so it has been a learning experience for all of us, but well worth the effort.
I was a 25 plus year crack cocaine addict when I was a younger man and I was rescued from my storm and it has been my passion, my calling, to reach out and help other recovering addicts and their loved ones along their journey to freedom. It’s our mission! I have been a volunteer at our local county detention center and our local county Drug court program here in Lexington, Kentucky for over four years. I am also a volunteer with the Fayette County Veterans Treatment Program.
Maybe the most disturbing thing that I have witnessed is the repetitive nature and actions of so many participants. They work hard for months, even years, to change their behaviors and then after all that hard work, they have to return to the places where all of their problems began.
Many of them don’t have employment, or a vehicle to enable them to find work, or a safe place to live! On top of all of that, they now have a criminal record. People see their record long before they ever see them. They’re be asked to bring a knife to gun fight! How realistic are their chances of success?
We endeavor to prepare them to re-enter society on their new path. Their NEW journey! I have been leading a relapse recovery group for the past fourteen months for our local county drug court program. After all, our ministry is based on hope! My stories are primarily based on the journey of addiction, however, we plan to embark on other related issues in the very near future.
Your support of our ministry, through your purchases of our products will help my team and me to continue bringing this vision of hope and help to these suffering people and their loved ones.
I have six books published on Amazon.com. I have written two children's stories. One is currently available on DVD. E.B. Meets The lamb. We also have CDs available with sound tracks, too, on our web site. adifferentkindofstorybook.com.
It is our hope that you will find our products enjoyable, entertaining, as well as, informative.
Thank you for your support.
Love & Peace,
