Horace James Smith


After a traumatic childhood, my conscience became scarred. It led to the development of mental illness. Even though I have been diagnosed with the disease called schizoaffective disorder, I have chosen writing about my journey as a form of healing. However, what I write is based on my personal experience, in church and outside; therefore my work should not be considered as Christian doctrine.

Smashwords Interview

Why do you write?
Writing is a form of expression that allows me to communicate what no one wants to hear. It is an outlet for the trapped emotions that are responsible for the diagnosis of mental illness. Even though I have been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, one of the illnesses is called paranoid schizophrenia. My paranoia is based on a false religion because it was in a religion that I was sexually abused, and the subsequent abuse that followed for almost 40 years. In the process, I developed a relationship with Christ. That relationship has undone most of the satanic programming from the abuse.

By writing, I hope that others can see that there is hope.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up within the Welfare State of Great Britain, but at the age of 16, I immigrated to the United States of America. In the 70s we, as children of the state, were never taught to have goals. If you had a good school report the headmaster would recommend you for a job. I learned that Great Britain is part of the nanny state culture that has raised many to conform to the rule of law without any thought for the soft skills that makes us humane. In the process, much of the survival skills that are needed are never learned and so many wastes their lives on benefits. I had the opportunity to leave England for America. America is a republic and the core emphasis is that you are free to do what you want to do. It was an idea that I found hard to adapt to, but I did. In the process, I lost my mind to gain my freedom from the doctrine of evolution that man is the centre of the universe and is evolving into a superbeing (Friedrich Nietzsche beyond good and evil).
