About the Author
I am Phyllistone Termine, born and raised in Miami, Florida. My parents are immigrants from the beautiful but very poor island of Haiti. I am the last of four children. I have two sisters - Phyltrows and Michelle; I have one brother - Lionelson, who is named after my father, Lionel. My sister, Michelle is named after my mother, Micheline, and I am named after my oldest sister, Phyltrows. I am currently serving a 54-month sentence in federal prison. I was convicted at the age of 19 on fraud charges. I also began to compose this book at the age of 19. I am a recovering drug addict; I have done all types of drugs and I have done all types of crime to support my habits. Luckily for me, I came to prison. I caught myself before the effects of drug abuse and a criminal lifestyle ended my life. I am a poet, songwriter, rapper, author, producer, and most importantly, I am a voice for all the people that have a story similar to mine. It is never too late to turn your life around. I robbed, sold dope, swiped people's credit cards, and almost lost my life several times. I dropped out of school in the ninth grade due to my gang ties. I was in the streets heavy since I was 14. Now I'm focusing on being the best person I can be and becoming a productive member of society.
