She was a Christian woman who turned to online dating to find a husband. He was a recovery drug addict who searched online for a woman who would not judge him. Together, they were combustible. The relationship grew out of two worlds that clashed. Anger impacted his ability to love, and fear affected her willingness to be loved. Cherished Diamond is based upon a real relationship, and actual events, experiences and conversations.

Seeking God? Addicted to drugs? Ron Alexander has written a masterfully scripted memoir, Don't Tell Me What to Do, for those who are lost, depressed, or may believe life holds no meaning. Alexander's memoir chronicles his life from 1954 to 2005 where he experienced firsthand social changes that shaped our country's future. From pre and post segregation, the political and social impact of Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and Huey Newton's Black Panther Party, Alexander interweaves them brilliantly with how they affected his life
Ron weaves together a tapestry of politics, racism, addiction and faith to tell personal stories of his life growing in Philadelphia where he experienced a tortured childhood beset with isolation, rejection and hopelessness. His personal essays powerfully reveal how he coped with transitions in his life and how he overcame demons that threaten to kill him while just thirty-years old. His reflections are authentic, thought provoking and painfully honest.
