“I am pleased with my experience with Outskirts Press and if I should publish another book, I will use them.”
Maurice Mayberry was born in Oakland, CA but now resides in Antioch, CA and works for a transit system in Concord. He attended Contra Costa College and Los Medanos College in California. Maurice has written poems, inspirational songs and this is his first published book and he is filled with joy!
My life seemed doomed because of my abusive father, my exposure to sexuality at a young age, my failed marriage to an older woman, and my appetite for a forbidden fruit that contributed to my path of emotional destruction. As a result, I became a loner, I was depressed, and suicidal thoughts stampeded my mind. But through it all, I’ve learned to love and forgive myself—I’m at peace.
