I did a rewrite of the story at the request of the Director of The Ohio State Reformatory. It was a good time and I learned a lot of history about the facility that can only be told from a "I've been there" point of view. It was great fun doing the rewrite since I picked it up and knew what I was going to add from the first page, inspired I guess. Ike had a good start on the story, I went in and added more "color" and details to the story after an interview with him of about two hours. I already guide tours of the Reformatory, so I had some working knowledge of the place already as far as where things were in the building. My "color" doubled the length of the orginal story, and I have to say, the Airborne idea was mine.

Anyway, my name in print!

Maybe I can get a signed copy of the book!

If anyone wants one, let me know, we'll work out something like free shipping. It really is a good read. There's Photo's that Ike, myself and Christina, the Director, picked out to go with the story so the reader would hav ean idea of the area we were writing about.

Ike won't get paid, but I think I got a shot of bourbon out of it.
