I have worn many hats in my life--parts manager for an HVAC company, attorney, substitute school teacher, owner of a network and computer company, a writer, and of late, I have also become a farmer. I helped develop both aquaponic and hydroponic farming methods in Central Ohio, with my son, Jonathan M. Jackson, II. You can read my blog at

An ardent fan of Ohio State football, I organized the Lowcountry Buckeyes Fan Club, Inc., a non-profit business promoting OSU football with over 100 members in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. So if you see me in a cap, it will always have an "O" on it.

Smashwords book reviews by Jonathan Jackson, Sr

  • A Prisoner & a Poem for a Princess on Nov. 03, 2014
    (no rating)
    Essays & More Straight From The Pen by Wayne T. Dowdy is a very scholarly glance at himself and the environment in which he is trapped. Prison can be as ugly as you want it to be but never beautiful. Yet, the essays are not aimed at criticism of the penal system but rather a reflection on how the author has grown, using the most detrimental of situations to enhance his life skills. Truly making lemonade from lemons, is an art and this prose and poetry is some of the best thirst-quenching beverage you will ever consume.

    Neither apologetic for his past behavior nor proud, Wayne Dowdy writes his life as vividly as Rembrandt painted oil on canvas, or Michelangelo took chisel to marble. The US Prison system is a wretched place to call home but the author has managed under the most stressful and hostile situation, to make lemonade from lemons. This book is reflective, energetic, and easy to read. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys simply well written non-fiction. --Alexius Rex, author of "I Rode with Morgan", "The Return to Brickendon Manor", and several other book.
