Grandma

The minute the first box of 25 “author copies” arrived at Shane’s home yesterday, he raced to his grandmother’s house to share this huge milestone with her.

This video clip is such a beautiful moment for his family and you can sense the overflowing joy and pride as Grandma, Shane, and cousin Sheena filming, realize how far he has come in his journey from inmate to published author.

Shane is an odds-beater. According to this 2019 study, at least two out of three, and maybe as high as eight out of ten, former inmates are arrested again after being released from prison. Shane has done the hard work in and out of lockup but most importantly is now focused on continuing to do good and help others. This book, CONVICTION, is part of his exemplary path.

If you want an autographed copy of Shane’s book, or know someone else who would, you can order one here. We can’t guarantee an emotional personal delivery like this one but you will love the book!

Shane’s Book: CONVICTION

In his first book, Shane shares revealing, sometimes shocking, but always insightful true stories from his 10 years in prisons from Alaska to Colorado. Told straight from the heart by arguably one of the most resilient and inspirational inmates the U.S. correctional system has ever seen, CONVICTION is a captivating read.


CONVICTION is more than just an engaging collection of stories illustrating the problems and dysfunction of prison, it also shows the power of humanity and love to permeate even the darkest corners of a system designed to punish, not rehabilitate, and the light remaining in the hearts of men in need of help, guidance, and a second shot at life.


CONVICTION represents Shane’s second shot at life and offers powerful insight into yours.
