Scott James Ries

Author Scott James Riesabout this book: Are you spiraling downward and have no hope of stopping, let alone climbing back up? I was a drunk for over 20 years. My last dance with alcohol was on February 15, 2009 which was the last time I was arrested and sent to prison. I am now a Logistics Manager and Personal Trainer. I use fitness to lead a better life. The title came to my thoughts (I suppose the Good Lord put it there). I wrote the book in a couple months, but a lot of hours were put into it. It is the first book in a series of 5. I picked stories for every book that I felt would have the most impact. The covers are simple but tell a story in themselves. I wanted consistency and flow for the series. Writing the series helps my sobriety and health by holding my self accountable to the world. The fear of failure is a very powerful tool. We all have a story. We all have hope. Writing the book helps me to see how very fortunate I am and if I trust God He will get me through. I wrote this book and series to help people see and believe they can get through whatever it is that they are battling.
