The man behind the post and this is my story……I am J. W. Smith an aspiring writer, inspirational speaker and motivator to all. I was born and raised in one of the toughest neighborhoods of South Central Los Angeles, California. At a very young age I was taught to survive by any means necessary or fall prey to society’s statistics. In the early 80’s when the crack epidemic hit the circulation of the inner city, I lost my father’s guidance and teachings to the drug, and my virginity to the streets. After many years of incarceration both as a juvenile and an adult, I finally woke up and started taken responsibility for my own actions rather than continuing to search for blame in others. With a lengthy stint of incarceration ahead of me and a high-school diploma to fall back on, I diligently set out to write my first novel “No Love Lost”, while the spirit of God provided the faith and the strength to conquer the obstacles I would face along my journey. I am the proud father of three young adults, two girl and a 23 year old young man, with the youngest graduating high school and set for Texas AM College this semester. My oldest daughter was in a tragic accident at the age of 16, paralyzed from the waist down, with every bone in her body broken per the doctors. She’s the inspiration that I look forward to and my 24 hour rock to lean on. She exudes the unfathomable determination to walk again. She’s the woman that gives me motivation to fight harder in becoming a successful provider, entrepreneur and inspiration to all. The perseverance and dedication within allows me to continue on this journey to master what avid readers can relate to, which is real life. I am the C.E.O of Shinning Starr Publications with several authors in the making on the roster.When I’m not writing I am enjoying a day of relaxation with the family or catching up on the politics of the world. I am Author J.W Smith and leaving a legend to be greatly remembered by is what I awake every morning with the anticipation of doing.
