About the Author

Rodney Maynor is a self published author of Myths, Memoirs and Confessions of an Ex-Felon. He was born and raised throughout his earlier years in Long Island, NY, along with his 4 other siblings. Upon moving to Edison, New Jersey, Rodney grew into a life of crime and was eventually incarcerated for more than 9 years in the federal system. When he was released in 2003, Rodney set in motion his initiatives to educate and alert the world of the perils that result from engaging in crime at an early age. In 2006, he consulted with the Union County Juvenile Probation Department to mentor recently released at-risk youths. Since then, 2 of those youths that he closely worked with have went on to be responsible individuals by maintaining steady employment and currently reaching back into their own communities. During 2008, Rodney co-hosted and produced A Black Man's View, an internet show on Youtube that addressed issues in the community and world. He's also the co-host and producer of RAW STEEL Radio & previously, SWeT Radio, both internet shows on blogtalkradio. Rodney, Founder of ZAE Publishing LLC, was a primary subject in a documentary DVD entitled Blacks In NJ that was produced in 2009, as well as co-produced & was co-playright of The Solitary Pen, a stage play based on this autobiography and performed in 2012. Rodney Maynor, a father of 3, now resides in Metuchen, NJ, where he publishes STEEL Magazine, which serves as a guide to uplift and empower individuals by equipping them with information & entertainment for an optimum lifestyle while aiming to preventing the rise of incarceration and death rates.

Format: Paperback
I received a book without pretentions and all I planned on doing was reading it to support a young black author on his quest for success. I immediately was challenged by one of my peers after hearing the title, " Myths, Memoirs, and Confessions of an Ex-Felon By RoMay". My friend said in a sarcastic voice, "Ex-Felon? Once a felon, always a felon!" This conversation compelled me to read this book without haste and find out how you could become an ex-felon.
Fascinated by a powerful intro of being thrusted into a world of incarceration, the book was an easy and fast read for any levels. Basic civilian can not fathom the horrors faced by those "in the cooler". My mind began to feel like I was in a RoMay "supermarket of life". The author compared apples to apples and "nuts to nuts" by explaining the do's and don't's of life as a prisoner and man. He ultimately created a fruit salad of understanding the humanity of having your freedom stripped away in order to pay for a shopping cart of bad deeds in the Express Lane. RoMay tantalizes your taste buds with heart wrenching events of survival in the big house as he reflects on his day to day struggle of maintaining the very sanity of confined living we take for granted. For any Scarface, thriller-seeking, reader: you will have calloused hands after turning the pages so hard to find out what happens next.
The book is based on hope, which some people today lack thereof. The plate of hope served by the author is filled with compassion and remorse. The book appeals to all genre of people, i.e.

I've always gravitated towards stories that fill me with inspiration & this book is no different! Myths, Memoirs & Confessions is a must read! It tells a story of life & how things just "happen" - its a story of family, friends, money, drugs, postive & negative experiences...The most intriguing part is when you actually enter his world - the other side - the INSIDE of the walls of his prison (literally & figuratively). You would think that the author was going to meet an inevitable & dismal future upon his release, but this book shows something different. It shows how incarceration can make or break someone(some of the stories in there will blow your mind) - His story MADE him! Great read! Would love to read a follow-up book to see what happens next!

Just finished reading Myths, Memoirs, and Confessions of Ex-Felon, what a page turner. The author takes you on his personal 9 year journey through the prison system and shows how his experiences, have brought him from the depths of despair to rebirth.
Every chapter sucked you in and made you connect in a way that left you craving for more, and eager to move on to the next one. I particulary loved the way the author fed you just enough to satisfy your cravings, but at the same time not overindulging.
Society does put this label of "Once a felon, always a felon", but people make mistakes and everyone deserves a second chance in life to right their wrongs. Being convicted of a crime, serving your time is one thing, but when you are thrown back into a world that is no longer what you left behind, surviving in it now becomes your biggest obstacle. You have two choices, being a repeat offender or showing the naysayers, and I quote his mom "You were born for greatness, Believe in yourself!"
I can see how writing this book made the author face his demons and how therapeutic it was for him.
Overall, great read and would highly recommend this book. I wish RoMay nothing but success in all his current and future projects. You are a winner.
