George Martorano is the longest-serving first-time non-violent offender in the Federal Bureau of Prisons. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole in 1988.
In 1984, on the advice of his attorney Robert Simone, Martorano pled guilty to 19 counts of drug possession and distribution. Martorano was subsequently advised by both the prosecution and the judge, John Berne Hannum, that this plea could result in a sentence of life without the possibility of parole. The prosecution, however, had only recommended a sentence of from 40 to 54 months. On September 20, 1984, Martorano was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, the longest prison term ever imposed on a first-time non-violent offender in American history. One of the harshest sentences ever handed out.
George Martorano is a writer and speaker. After serving 32 years of his life sentence for a non-violent crime he has been released in Oct 2015. His aim, as a free man, is to pass to others what he has learned through his unique experience, and to help. We are proud to say that George used The Streets Don't Love You Back Book to teach from in Prison since 2010.

Monique Newell Taylor was born and raised on the East Side of Kansas City, Missouri. She had a traumatic childhood that included violence, sexual abuse, alcoholism, and an eating disorder that started at age five and lasted until she turned 40. She was 21 years old when she started out on a journey of drug addiction that would last over two decades and take her down roads and to places that no one could have ever imagined she would go.
Over 65 arrests with four of them being felonies to include; prostitution, auto theft, commercial burglary, habitual shoplifter, transporting 90 pounds of Marijuana crossing the Tijuana border, unlawful felony possession of cocaine arrest in the notorious Mc Arthur park by dirty Cops from the Rampart Division Scandal in the 90’s,forgery and last but not least participating in a bank robbery. Her addiction took her across the United States on a drug hungered crime spree that lasted for over two decades. Her story shows how violence and addiction ravaged her family for three generations with sibling and children who were involved in murder, by self defense. It seemed like she was as addicted to Bad Boys and unhealthy relationships as bad as she was the drugs. Choosing men who drug her down time and time again.
Today she has turned her life over to God and has not used crack for seven years. God healed her relationships with her children and family, she is newlywed to a Pastor who was widowed with 3 small children. She wishes to share her story of God’s Grace as she was a woman who hated herself, abandoned her children, was in and out of prison, whose parents never gave up on her. And now that she finally has a happy ending, she would like to share, inspire and give hope to others.

Overcoming a breakup can be a real challenge. Often, to be successful in the next relationship, we must understand the parts of us that broke up, too. Learning to recognize, evaluate, and change the negative patterns that repeatedly show up in our relationships is hard, but with some research, introspection, and practice, it’s possible to take a step forward and get back out there. As with anything, re-entering the dating scene is a process. In Getting Back Out There, a sequel of sorts to her book Getting Past Your Break Up, Susan J. Elliott outlines the pains and gains inherent in facing the dating scene again. With insight into the “Five Rs”—Readiness, Rejection, Recycling, Rebounding, and Retreating—Elliott illuminates the bumps we can expect on the road to a new relationship, and shows us how to cope with them. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer, talks to author, Susan Elliot about her best-selling book, Getting Back Out There: Secrets to Successful Dating and Finding Real Love after the Big Breakup. Stay tuned!
