About the author


My name is Cedric D.Gregory I'm 53 years old. I Have 10  children and 6 grandchildren. I grew up in South East San Diego. The community of Emerald Hills, where I still reside there with my mother who is 86 years old, my 3 younger kids, and my two siblings. We've owned this house for 46 years. My mother raised me as a single parent, it's not her fault the route I took. In Southern California more than half of us chose the route of gang banging, drug dealing and all that comes with it. The book is based on the same time the crack epidemic started in my town. After the trials some of us seem to go that route. Which ended me up in jail, to state prison, to federal prison. Its also where I found the Lord. Got saved started reading books, and where I started writing. When I was released in 2016, I joined Grace Spring Valley church where I was welcomed with open arms. I also started back coaching baseball this time my youngest girls were on my team. its never to late to make a positive change in life.
